Crock Pot Caramelized Onions

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

These are fantastic! You can squish them down into an ice cube tray sprayed with oil and freeze them. Pop them out and store in a freezer bag. They thaw out perfectly.

They also make great onion soup! After the onions are caramelized add 4 cans of beef broth, some thyme and a little bit of dry sherry. Serve with the usual crouton and Swiss melted on the top. Super!
