This recipe has lots of uses. It's great as a base for French onion soup, spread on toast topped with your favorite cheese, stirred into mashed potatoes or hash browns, or mixed into hamburger patties.
Sauté onion in hot oil in a 3 1/2-qt. saucepan over medium heat 8 minutes or until tender; add garlic, and sauté 2 minutes. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 5 days.
