- To make caramelized onions: In a pan over medium-high heat butter and olive oil. Add onions and let sit about 5 minutes. Once onions start sweating, turn heat to low and cover pan. Cook onions to deep golden brown, stirring every 10 to 15 minutes. With 10 minutes left, stir in balsamic vinegar.
- To make flatbread: Preheat oven to 425°F. On flatbread layer cheese, bacon, and caramelized onions. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and edges are golden brown.
- If desired, toss arugula with olive oil and lemon juice before placing on flatbread. Makes 2 or 3 servings.
