Did You Know?
The onions need to cook slowly, so the natural sugar in them can caramelize and develop that delicious, delicate sweet flavor. So be patient, and don't increase the heat to make the onions brown more quickly.
If your bread machine doesn't have a Raisin/Nut signal, add the caramelized onions 5 to 10 minutes before the last kneading cycle ends. Check your bread machine's use-and-care book to find out how long the last cycle runs.
