Sausage and Onions

Not everyone in my family liked sausage and peppers when I was growing up, so my mom would make a sausage and onion version.

 I use to eat the caramelized onions right out of the pan while my mom wasn’t looking, funny, I still do that when I make caramelized onions, in fact I always put in an extra onion now.  This is such an easy week night dinner.

3 Medium Onions ~ Cut in half then sliced

2 tablespoons Olive Oil

2 tablespoons Butter

6 Italian Sausages

6 Soft Rolls

Heat the oven to 375 degrees

Spray your baking dish with a light coating of cooking spray, add sausages, cover sausages with foil and bake for 40 minutes.

Add olive oil and butter to a large sauté pan.  After butter has melted add sliced onions, cook on low/medium heat.  I know it will seem like a ton of onions, but they cook way down.  You will want to cook the onions rather slowly so the onion will caramelize properly.  This process takes about 20 minutes.

After the sausage have cooked for 40 minutes remove foil and cook for a remaining 15 minutes to brown.

Place a sausage in each bun and top with caramelized onions. Yummy!
