Recipe Tips

How to Make Caramelized OnionsHeat 2 Tbsp. oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add 4 cups sliced onions; cook 10 min., stirring frequently. Simmer on medium-low heat 15 to 20 min. or until onions are tender and golden brown, stirring occasionally. Makes about 1 cup caramelized onions. Use 1/2 cup of the caramelized onions to prepare this pie. Then, refrigerate remaining caramelized onions up to 5 days, or freeze up to 1 month, before using as desired.

NoteFor best results, use firm but ripe tomatoes.

VariationPrepare using your favorite variety of cheese, such as Gruyere, cheddar or Fontina, and/or your choice of fresh summer herbs, such as basil, chives or oregano.
