That sounds good and easy. Marking this one.

Thanks Jean, I made something similar a while back and we loved it. Will definately be trying this one.

Me too Maryann. As a matter of fact, we were supposed to have that one last night with the collards and forgot until William started chopping the pork. Dinner was really good though. I have lots left, so I'll probably make this one to go with them. That and the crispy cornbread I couldn't make due to buggy meal.

Thanks Jean!

Jean, we eat at a place for lunch where we get a steak salad or sandwich and they serve a Maui onion salsa with it. It is roughly pureed and a golden color--delicious!! This sounds similar--any thoughts on a salsa, maybe use a sweet onion and delete the honey? ---this might work.

Re: Onion Jam for Burgers - cjs - 01-02-2009

I would think so - just caramelizing onions makes them so sweet. I love onions like this on sandwiches.

Oooh- made this tonight to top burgers with gorgonzola. Very, very tasty! I only had about 3/4 cup of an open bottle of red wine but that was fine.

Thank you for sharing. The onions combined with the cheese really worked well.

I made something similar once with balsamic and it was served on salmon. I lost the recipe so I am glad you brought this up.

Sounds good, and the grocery has gorgonzola on sale. Hmmmm.
