1. Did you put water in your onions before microwaving? The picture looks like you did, but I didn’t see it on the recipe. Also, what is the purpose of microwaving the onions?

    • No, I didn’t add any water. There is enough in the onion.
      When Cook’s Illustrated tested this recipe over and over, they discovered that giving the onions a jump start in order to cook properly. Since they test the same recipe hundreds of times more than I do, I usually start with their technique first. If it doesn’t work out, I’ll go backwards. But giving the onions a head start allowed both items to finish at relatively the same time and allow time for caramelizing later. Then you can enjoy your hot sausage and onion at the same time! Yum!!! I hope you try it. I used the sausage from Trader Joe’s. It was soooo delicious.
