Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place potatoes on a baking sheet; bake until tender, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add onions; cook until soft, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with sugar, salt, and pepper; toss to coat. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are very soft and caramelized, about 1 hour more, adding water a tablespoon at a time if pan dries. Stir in vinegar. Set aside; keep warm.

Absolutely amazing! My daughter nearly ate everything that was left when she got home after the rest of us had eaten. Flavor is really satisfying, almost in a meat-y sort of way. The flavor from this combination is something you could not imagine from each individual ingredient's flavor alone. Definitely use shaved parmesan, not the powdery kind. I cut my sweet potatoes in couple-inch-long hunks instead of leaving whole. Topped with the onions and cheese and popped back in oven to get all melty.
