Mac n Cheese with Goat Cheese and Sweet Onion Marmalade

Posted by Kirsten Mack on

This mac n cheese works really well with any of our traditional organic pasta shapes. The sweet onion marmalade is the perfect compliment to the creamy, richness of the goat cheese and can be made in advance.

Ingredients for the Sweet Onion Marmalade

  • 2 large yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 T butter
  • 1/4 C brown sugar
  • 1 T balsamic vinegar
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Melt butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook until they caramelize, about 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in brown sugar and balsamic vinegar, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for another 5 minutes. Cool the mixture and add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Pour the cooled onions into a food processor and pulse until the mixture becomes a thick sauce. Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
