Tater Tuesday! Caramelized Onion on 04/19/2011 10:32:50 MDT Print View

Caramelized Onion Taters
Serves 1

Fresh sliced onion will last a couple of days in your pack. Whole onions are virtually indestructible, so on longer trips slice them in camp for this recipe.


¼ cup fresh onion, thinly sliced
½ cup instant mashed potatoes, any flavor
olive oil

At home: slice onion and place in a zip locking plastic bag. Place the instant potatoes in a second bag. Carry the olive oil in a small screw top container.

In camp: heat pan. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and heat. Add onions. Sauté until golden brown and caramelized.

Stir in 1 cup water. Stir, scraping the bottom of the pan gently to get all of the bits of onion. Bring to a boil.

Add potatoes and stir to combine.

It's Keen Eyes from the ADZPCTKO. I plan on utilizing your book of knowledge for my 5 trip starting tomorrow.

If you haven't purchased the AMAZING Dicentra's book you should totally pick up a copy. Well worth the read.

Heya Keen Eyes!

Good to have met you at KO. I assume you mean 5 month trip?

Thanks for the nice words about the book. I *still* have no voice! lol.
