Fall side dish: Carmelized onions with apples & mushrooms


I whipped this up last week after I picked up a big bag of Macintosh apples, my very favorite variety. They aren’t necessarily the best for cooking, but for all-around everyday flavor, I love ’em.

Let’s get this started.

You need:
One cooking onion
One apple
Two slices bacon
Few mushrooms (totally optional; I made this without the ‘shrooms as well. Just as tasty!)

Chop everything up.

Bacon! Similar to the Big Bowl of Awesome™, cook your bacon until nearly done.

Add the onions & apples; cook on low until the onions are nearly carmelized, stirring often. The sugars from the apples will do amazing things to the onions.

Then throw in your mushrooms, & continue until these are cooked down a bit. See how everything is melding together nicely? This is where the taste factor hits amazing.

This is easily doubled, tripled; you get the idea. This makes for an awesome breakfast by itself or inside an omelet; also delicious as a side with baked chicken or nicely grilled steak. Enjoy!

  1. Lots of folks would not agree on your take of Macintosh apples not being the best for cooking, but your recipe sounds fabulous and I totally expect you to make this for me this weekend!

  2. Do you then? I suppose I could be talked into making this for breakfast on Sunday, but only if you promise to have lots of eggs to make with this!

    I thought macs were not as good because they’re a bit of a soft apple. Aren’t the crispy ones better for that sort of thing?
