Caramelized Onions

In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until onions are soft and golden, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add maple syrup and vinegar; cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are caramelized, about 10 min­utes. Transfer to bowl; set aside. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight con-tainer and refrigerated for up to 1 week.)

Mashed Potatoes

Meanwhile, place potatoes in large saucepan; cover with cold water. Bring to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer just until potatoes are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove pan from heat; drain potatoes and return to saucepan.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan, heat cream, butter, thyme, garlic and nutmeg over medium heat until butter has melted and liquid is hot. Using slotted spoon, remove thyme and garlic and discard. Mash potatoes. Stir in cream mixture and half of the caramelized onions. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon into serving dish; top with remaining caramelized onions. Sprinkle with chopped thyme, if desired.
