ingredients

directions

  • You can use just about any kind of onion for this--Vidalia, Spanish, yellow--it's your choice.
  • Slice the stem and root ends off each onion. Peel the onions, but leave them whole.
  • Place onions and butter in crock pot and cook on low for anywhere from 12-36 hours. The onions will get deep golden brown and literally fall apart.
  • Use right away or freeze for later.
  • Suggested uses: in omelets, sandwiches, soups, casseroles, dips, pasta sauce, or alongside any grilled meat.
  • Note: If your crock pot is big enough, you can double the amount of onions.

    I just got that same huge bag from Costco. Could I make it with less butter or with an oil? Better yet, how about chicken stock or Aquafaba? Add any herbs or?

    Just keep in mind your entire house will smell like onions. I couldn’t handle it. After 14 hours I had to turn it off and open the windows. If I had a screened in porch to put the crockpot I would certainly do this crockpot version again.

    OMG! What a great way to do this! Actually left for 48 hrs on low - 6 onions - froze 5 and had french onion soup for dinner - from scratch - on a work night! (Thank God for good stock in the freezer too!) THANK YOU THANK YOU!

    Great recipe! Great way to use up the last of the 10# bag of onions I buy from Costco. I used these broken up on pizzas and in casseroles. I cannot wait until the sweet Vidalia and 1015s come back into season. I am going to freeze lots of these.

    DH loves onions but I have to saute them first to mellow them as they love him back all night after he eats them. This was a great idea. I froze the onions after caramelizing and used them as needed for various dishes. They smell great while cooking,too. Thanks, Jeri.
