This sweet onion sauce is easy to make, and will give a kick to your sandwiches. You can make it in the microwave or on the stove. Keep it in the fridge and use it on chicken, fish or even as a salad dressing. It's delicious -- and no one needs to know how easy it is to make.

Combine all measured ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a low boil over medium heat. Add a pinch of garlic powder, a pinch of poppy seeds and salt and pepper to taste. Do not heat too long since this recipe involves corn syrup, and you do not want to make hard candy. Simmer for 1 minute, whisking thoroughly.

Combine all ingredients in a microwavable bowl, if you prefer to make this in the microwave. Heat uncovered for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until the mixture begins to boil. Whisk thoroughly.

Cool sauce, then place it in the fridge overnight. Pour into a squeeze bottle or resealable container. Keep refrigerated until you intend to use it.


White onion is better than yellow, and vidalia are better still. Make sure your onion is minced into very small pieces. Dried onion flakes can be used in a pinch, but fresh onion will give the sauce a better flavor.
