Ingredients

1 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
2 lg. red onions, sliced
2 Tbs. water
2 Tbs. chopped fresh thyme
1/2 C. all-purpose flour
1/2 C. low fat milk
2 lg. eggs
2 lg. egg whites
1 Tbs. canola oil
1 Tbs. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1/4 C. crumbled goat cheese
1 C. balsamic vinegar
2 tsp . honey

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat olive oil in a large cast-iron or oven proof nonstick skillet over medium high heat.
2
Reduce heat to medium, add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are tender and light golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
3
Stir in water and thyme, scraping up any browned bits.
4
Meanwhile, position rack in middle of oven; preheat to 450 degrees.
5
Blend flour, milk, eggs, egg whites, canola oil, sugar, salt and pepper in a blender until smooth. Pour the batter over the onions.
6
Sprinkle with cheese. Bake the pancake until puffed and golden, about 15 minutes.
7
Meanwhile, combine vinegar and honey in a small saucepan.
8
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until syrupy and reduced to 1/3 cup, 12 to 15 minutes. (Watch carefully during the last few minutes to prevent burning.)
9
Cut the pancake into wedges and serve immediately with the balsamic syrup.
