2 lbs onions (white, yellow, or vidalia)
1 tablespoon margarine (I use Smart Balance Light) or 1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon sugar (adjust according to your preference, if using Vidalia or other sweet onions, can cut the sugar in ha)
salt and pepper
Wash onions, trim ends and remove outer layer (keep whole). Cook in salted boiling water for 30- 50 minutes (depending on size of onions) until soft and onion layers start to 'come apart'. Drain water, and toss onions w/ margarine, sugar, salt and pepper. You can make this recipe a day or 2 in advance, store in fridge, and heat up in microwave just before serving.
