Caramelized Onions

For all onion lovers like me, this is a must have recipe.
Caramelized Onions
1 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
4 large onions (preferably sweet onions)
kosher salt

Melt butter and oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Peel onions and cut in half.
Slice each half into strips.
Separate onions as you spread them into the pan.
Toss to coat all onions with butter/oil mixture.
Turn heat down to medium-low.
Sprinkle with kosher salt, to taste.
Continue cooking and stirring occasionally until onions are soft with an amber color, about 40 minutes.
Additional butter/oil may be added to the pan to keep them from sticking to the bottom.

These are absolutely wonderful on oh so many things.  Like pizza, or burgers, or steak.  And sandwiches, pitas, mixed veggies, roast beef, etc. etc.  Possibilities are pretty much endless here.  And if you are a freak like me, you'll sneak a few just plain.
