Caramelized Onion Skillet Corn Bread

As part of GMA's $15 Dinner Dare series, each day an anchor unveiled a list of secret ingredients, then a chef had to prepare a tempting family meal live on the air with the newly unveiled ingredients. Emeril Lagasse was the second chef to take on the challenge. His list of surprise ingredients included only vegetables: black beans, pinto beans and spinach, so he contrived this side dish from the GMA pantry. I've never known anyone who could instantly caramelize onions, so this method was a huge surprise. Now, if you'd rather be more traditional, you can always caramelize onions (cut in 1/2 inch pieces) in the skillet over medium heat using a couple of tablespoons of butter and a little oil, sauteing until they turn brown and caramelize, then melt the remaining butter in the skillet (add sugar here if you like sweet cornbread) and continue with the recipe as written. Prep time includes time to heat the skillet.
