Caramelized Onions

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Crockpot, Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 3 lb Sweet Onions; Note 1
  • 1/4 c Butter; Note 2
  • 10 oz Nonfat Veg Chicken Broth;
  • -Low Sod, Note 3


Note 1: Vidalia or other sweet onions (approx 2 1/2 lbs), 3 - 4" in
diameter, stem and root ends removed, peeled and left whole

Note 2: Original recipe used 1/2 C (1 stick) butter or margarine

Note 3: Original recipe used one 10 oz can chicken or vegetable broth

Place the onions, butter and broth in a crock pot and cook on low 12-24
hours until the onions are deep golden brown and very soft. Different crock
pots will take different amounts of time. it”™s almost impossible to
overcook this, so go for the deepest brown. Use the onions and liquid to
flavor soup, stock, and stews. they make a wonderful addition to risotto, a
perfect pasta sauce, and the world”™s best pizza topping (drain off the
liquid first).

I left in some of the butter so it would give the onions a more full, rich

These are so easy to caramelize this way.
