Caramelized Pearl Onions

Serves 1 hungry boyfriend in 20 minutes

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 20-25 pearl onions, peeled*
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce

1.  In a small skillet heat oil and butter over medium heat.  Add onions and raise heat to medium-high, shaking the pan occasionally.  Add thyme and season with salt and pepper.  Cook for 5 minutes, then reduce heat to medium.  Cook, stirring occasionally for another 10 minutes until onions are carmelized.  Add worcestershire sauce and stir.  

*Peel the onions like garlic.  Smash with the back of a knife, loosening the skin to peel.
