Caramelized onions are a great accompaniment to many dishes, but I never order them out because they're almost guaranteed to be doused in oil or butter. Here, I make them much lighter but still get that to-die-for flavor I love so much (and you likely will too).
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the onions on the baking sheet. Drizzle the olive oil over them and season them with salt and pepper. Toss them well. Spread them evenly over the baking sheet. Bake them for 20 to 22 minutes, turning about every 5 minutes, until the onions are cooked through and caramelized (soft and lightly browned).
