Eazy Onions? What are they…..
We didn’t spell it wrong. The name of this Eazy Onion and Ale Gravy comes from the product we used to make it!
Eazy Fried Onions are such a time saver!! Fantastic product can’t recommend enough, perfect for any dish that calls for softly sauteed onions. To get onions to a melt in the mouth softness yourself, takes a lot of tears, chopping. Not to mention, the 20 minutes of cooking time! Found in most supermarkets usually, down the same aisle as tinned vegetables. I picked mine up from my local Morrisons.
In addition to speeding up the process of chopping Onions. It also makes our gravy so simple & quick to make yet still so delicious at the same time.
Check out the college below, to see how good they are. 1/2 a tin is equal to approx 3 small onions. Store the other half for up to 4 days in an airtight container. You can adjust the amount of onion if you prefer a smoother gravy?
What to serve Onion Gravy with?
We made this gravy to go with our Steak and Doom Bar Pie and garlic mash.
However, you can use with many recipes you cook at home.
Alternative gravy ingredients?
Alternatively, try switching the Ale & Thyme for Red Wine & Rosemary for extra richness to go with Roast dinners.
In like manner, if doing a roast dinner you can substitute some of the cooking juices from your roast joint in place of the beef stock. Making your Eazy Onion and Ale Gravy even tastier!
