“This has the sweet Vidalia onion and it's just plain good. Other sweet onions can also be used if Vidalia is not in season. Try it, you'll like it.”

I did not care for the molasses flavor at all! I've made caramelized onions before where the recipe called for a small amount of granulated white sugar and I'll go back to that. The white sugar added as the onions begin to saute helps them get brown and caramelized without adding that molasses flavor.

Not bad. I am going to make it a second time and try it Chebelle's way. Just add white sugar to the pan as they start to brown and that will carmelize. I will let you know which way I like better. A little bit too molasses"y". But, still good. UPDATE: I made them the other way that was suggested by a reviewer-Chebelle-I like her way much better. But, you could probably use less molasses if you want and add some white sugar as they are carmelizing. They should be just as good. Enjoy!

These were awesome. I was slightly worried about the reviews talking about them being too molasses-y, but I went for it and followed the recipe as is. So glad I did because these onions were fantastic. Put them on homemade chipotle burgers on fresh onion buns with monterey jack cheese, roasted red peppers (also sauteed in the bacon fat), mayo, lettuce, and tomato. Seriously best homemade burger EVER.
