Sauteed Mushrooms and Onions with Balsamic Vinegar

Mushrooms and onions sauteed in a bit of oil and balsamic vinegar add punch to pizzas, grilled meats, and pastas.

Mushrooms are one of my favorite foods on earth. Definitely in my top ten. Pizza? Mushrooms, please. Steak? Mushrooms, please. Pasta? Mushrooms, please.

I have at least one child who shares my affinity for mushrooms. That justifies my indulgence. And it’s so fun to experiment. Like with this panful of sauteed mushrooms and onions. These are simple, flavorful, and hearty — and add great flavor to pizza, steak, and yes, pasta. You can even tuck them inside an omelet or on a sandwich.

We enjoyed chicken, brie, and this topping on Italian bread. Yum-O!

Use balsamic vinegar for a little zest.

One of the things that truly adds a depth of flavor to this recipe is the balsamic vinegar. It’s a great thing to jazz up sauces, but it works well in sauteed vegetables as well.

Currently, Holland House, a maker of vinegars and cooking wines, is running a Facebook sweepstakes in conjunction with The Meal Makeover Moms. Three winners will get a “meal makeover” and at the end of the promotion, one Facebook fan will win a cooking set, valued at $500.
