How to Make Caramelized Onions

Back when the Cheesecake Factory used to carry the Mile High Meatloaf sandwich, the best part for me were the sweet, velvety caramelized onions that went between the meatloaf and mashed potatoes.  I was always too intimidated to try to make them because they were a little time consuming.   But when they yanked it from the menu, I had no choice but to attempt them and boy are Mr. Kringle and I glad I did!

If you have an hour you’re already going to be spending in the kitchen, do yourself the favor of learning how to make this amazing dish.  It will take your meatloaf, burgers, hot dogs and anything else you can think of to the next level!  You can make them ahead of time and freeze them if well wrapped to use later!
