My New York Onions


(0 votes) 0 0

Thinly sliced onions sauteed in a little margarine, water, ketchup and black pepper. They're like the onions served on  a Saberets hotdog cart. They are wonderful on not only hotdogs but on hamburgers, steak, fish etc. It keeps well in the refrigerator for a long time and can be zapped as desired, It enhances a less expensive hotdog. Its is not expensive to make, and usually you have the ingredients on hand. I started making these onions when I missed the hotdog carts from the city when I moved to the country. They look and taste just like the ones on the cart......A wonderful condiment all around and not too spicy, but can be spiced up with hot sauce or pepper as desired. Keep it mild and add hotness as desired......I make it in about a 2 or 3 cup amount and keep it in a sealed tupperware container. Remember onions cook down so when preparing it will look like alot more than you will have at the end of cooking. They only have to cook until onions are soft, they are easy and quick and can be made ahead for reheating. A wonderful item for a pot luck or a bbq.

Peel onions, cut in half, and slice thinly. Place in a sautee pan or pot with margarine, start to cook on med flame. Add water, katchup, and pepper as they cook. Simmer until onions are soft...let cool, put in a tight sealing container to keep in refrigerator unless you are serving immediately.

  • I make these onions all the time. I don't put in all that water. Just about 1 tablespoon to get the onions started.
