Crock Pot Caramelized Onions

If you have a crock pot or slow cooker, its super easy to make caramelized onions. Once prepped, you can keep the onions in the fridge for about a week, but don’t try freezing them; the texture will change when you thaw them out. I recommend serving the onions over pierogies, on top of steaks or burgers, or simply on good bread with Parmesan cheese and balsamic vinegar.


  • 1.5 pounds yellow onions
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Slice the onions. If you have a mandolin, this will take no time. You can also chop the onions roughly and give them a few spins in the food processor.  Add all ingredients to the crock pot. Cook for 8-10 hours on low or 4 hours on high, stirring occasionally.
