Crockpot Caramelized Onions

Caramelized onions are an incredible addition to…pretty much everything.  Stir them into mashed potatoes or wilted greens, sprinkle them on top of a pizza, or use them in one of our staff's favorite recipes: mujaddara (Lebanese lentils).

  2. Note: Leftover caramelized onions can be stored in containers and refrigerated for a week or two. Or they can be frozen for up to 6 months.
