  1. This sounds delicious and so easy. Question … do you think one could use olive oil instead of butter? Perhaps vegan butter? Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love onions and this looks really really super delicious! I have pinned it and i am trying it. Will go to the store and get the onions.

    My mouth is watering as I type.

    Thanks so much for sharing – both of you!

    What size crock pot works best? I’ve got a particularly large one.

  4. Christen Noble says:

    Do you know how you could turn this into French Onion Soup once the onions are done?

  5. I would not have thought to put onions in a crockpot to caramelize them! What a great idea and so easy!

  6. Do you think you’d do this all the same for Red Onions?

  7. Tried this a few days ago and my onions burnt. :-( Left them over night. Do you recommend stirring occasionally or should I try the low setting?

  8. I need to cook 75 onions for 150 Kilbasa sandwiches, can I put more than 5 onions in the crock pot and cook for the same length of time and have them done in 10 hrs? hope so!!!

    • Yes, you should be fine adding more. Make sure to add more butter as well! You might need to cook it a little longer, so adjust for maybe an hour or 2 longer :)

  9. I just launched my blog and this recipe inspired one of my first posts! Thank you! http://www.juniperinherhair.com/crock-pot-caramelized-onions/

  10. Sorry. This recipe just didn’t make it. The onions were floating in their own broth and never even started to brown. I had to drain them and finish frying them in a hot frying pan.
