    Hi Nee, I like caramelized onions. Whenever I happen to see big onions on sale, I would buy let's say about 4 or 5kg and I would make few bottles of caramelized onions. I store it in the fridge and have it with toasted bread,cream crackers, steam fish, chicken, etc. Just love it ! Your caramelized onion in cheese pastries should be very delish and superb! Perfect combination :)
