I like to make a batch of this overnight to use in whatever I'm cooking the next day. The smell of the onions slowly caramelizing overnight lends to very sweet dreams!

    I'm never making caramelized onions on the stove again, haha! I used a little less oil rather than butter (b/c what I had on hand) and it turned out great!

    To make these onions a little more 'crispy' like some people have said they like, I just pop them on the stove in a fry pan with a little butter until they get that crunchy outside. It doesn't take long. This way, you can just pull out what you need and they crisp up quickly!

    I don't use my crock pots often... but I have a large 5 qt crock pot, is that too big to try this with? (It always says to fill it to the 3/4 point... which I usually can't, so just don't use it! lol)

    Got a covered porch/patio/mud room or similar? Run power to the crock pot out there and let cook overnight. In a small house, we found this helpful to keeping everything inside from absorbing the intense aromas.

    My batch turned out perfect - I decided not to add salt - but otherwise, followed recipe exactly. Cooked on low for approximately 11 hours. My lid is not that tight so liquid evaporated.
