I have made a lot of veggie side-dishes in the GoSun at this point, but this is by far the best. On Saturday morning, Husband’s parents were visiting and we made bacon for breakfast, special treat. Later that afternoon, Husband decided burgers on the grill would be perfect for the sweltering evening, and so that we could have caramelized onions without heating up the house even more, I chose to put the onions into the GoSun instead of cooking them on the stove top. I had the stroke of genius, as I finished up cutting onions, that I should put some bacon grease on them before I put them into the GoSun.
About an hour and a half later, they were WONDERFUL. The top layer was just translucent with little edges of brown, but the bottom layer had been stewing in its mixture of bacon grease and onion juices, and mmmm they were so sweet and soft! I will be throwing them on top of leftover burgers for the next few days, for sure! I also did a batch of cherry tomato halves, which were not quite so good – they just don’t dry out in the GoSun, so I need to do what I did a couple weeks ago and let them evaporate-dry for a few hours before putting them in the GoSun. Keep an eye on tomatoes because they certainly can burn – I had bits of carbonized tomato on my GoSun tube to show for it. Still, the sweet victory of those onions made up for it, and I’m excited to have something to do with all this heat wave temperatures.
What are your favorite foods for a heat wave? Obviously cooking isn’t everyone’s cup of tea when the heat is on, but what foods do you prepare? 🙂 Looking forward to your comments.
