Easy Crockpot Caramelized Onions

I love recipes that are easy, and help me use up excess produce.  I was at the store a couple of weeks ago, and they had 6 bags of red onions [affiliate link] on sale for a clearance price of $0.99 per bag.  Each bag weighed 6 pounds.  I walked out of the store with 36 pounds of red onions for under 6 bucks!  We love red onions, but you gotta admit that's a lot of onions! 😉 I needed to do something with them and decided to put them in the crock pot.

The recipe is very simple

  • 12-16 onions, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup beef or chicken broth

Place in crock pot on low.  Cook for 18 to 24 hours.

That's it!

I would recommend starting your crock pot in the evening so that you can watch the cooking process during the day.

Allow onions to cool.   Divide into 1 or 2 cup portions and freeze for use in soups, sauces or other dishes.
