caramelized onions: Slice a large sweet onion very thin - for example- you will need one large onion for 4 burgers. Heat 1 T butter and 1 T olive oil in a large skillet. Cook the onions on low stirring frequently until golden and very limp- they should melt in your mouth. This usually takes 35-45 minutes.

*Caramelizing onions is an act of patience.  When you cook onions over a very slow heat- long and slow- the natural sugars in the onions are released and naturally caramelize.  This process will only happen if they are allowed to cook slowly- otherwise they will burn and become bitter. Caramelized onions add savor and depth to salads, sandwiches, sauces, dips, stews, and pasta, and are a versatile topping for pizza, steak, chicken, grilled fish- virtually anything.
