Caramelized French Onion Soup

Brown and white onions

I got this recipe from Southern Living a hundred years ago, and it is a hit with most adults.  The caramelized onions that are the base are great on burgers too! It does take a long time to cook but it is all in the slow cooker, so it is pretty hands off. From experience I have learned not to put the onions on to cook overnight, because I keep waking up hungry from the delicious smell!!!

Caramelized Onions

3 lbs of onions, cut in half, then thinly sliced

10 oz beef broth

1/4 C butter

1. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and cook on high for 8 hours.

2. Store in an airtight container in fridge for up to 2 weeks, or in freezer for 2 months.

    I used to get onion soup and a restaurant I went to, but haven’t found any that compared. This recipe was as good or better than i remembered.
