1 stick of butter (not margarine…no, not marge) I used 1/2 stick
Peel onions. I slice mine, but you can leave them whole if you have a lot of time. I’ve read recipes that tell you to put the butter in the crockpot first and others that have you put the butter on top of the onions. Either way will come out fine.
Best method: put crockpot on low and let the onions cook down for up to 48 hours (I’d leave them whole for that long) until they get the gorgeous golden brown color.
When you’ve forgotten to do it ahead: Set the crockpot on high and go for it in 6 – 9 hours.
What, you ask, will I do with all those onions?
Oh, my friend…..
There is caramelized onion and gorgonzola pizza. There are sandwiches which are ever so better with C. Onions. A side for a roast. A lovely addition to Chicken Feta.
It makes the house smell divine. Or not. If you don’t like onion smell, just put the crockpot in the garage or laundry room.
And, if I may confess, I love to eat them by themselves.
