This recipe was given to me by a friend in California who passed away a couple of years ago. Its delicious, especially if you like the flavor of honey. I do't know where she got the original recipe but she was a great cook! Thank you Pat. Picture is free clip art.

Cook (stirring to get and good pan drippings incorporated into onion mixture) over medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until onions are tender-crisp.
