What are caramelized onions good for? Oh, the possibilities! I tried (and loved) them on grilled burgers, slow-roasted ribs, homemade pizza, and even as a topping for saltine crackers. If I had some toasted bruschetta, they would be delicious on that, too! You can also mix the onions into things like mashed potatoes, scrambled eggs, seasoned rice -- use your imagination with them. This one's a keeper!
3 sweet onions, sliced
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4-1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt (or salt to taste)
Combine ingredients in crockpot, and cook on LOW for around 10 hours.
I think a 3-quart crockpot or smaller is best. The onions take up alot of space when they are freshly sliced and separated, but they wilt down when cooked.
I used 1/2 cup olive oil, and I thought it was a bit much. I think I will use 1/4 cup next time.
Your favorite spices and herbs can be added to suit your taste or to compliment a dish you plan to use these in.
