Caramelised (Becky's spelling) Onions
1 stick butter
3 lbs. sweet onions such as Vidalias
Place stick of butter in Crock Pot or Slow Cooker. Peel and slice onions in 1/4" strips. Cover & cook on low until a dark mahogany color. Normally 12-14 hours.
I also added 1 tsp. fresh ground pepper and 3 sprigs of thyme to my onions while cooking. Removed stems prior to finishing for French Onion Soup.
The next morning...I added 2 bay leaves, 1/2 cup Red Moscato wine, 3 cups beef broth and simmered on low for 6 hours. Remove bay leaves.
Finishing touches...made 1" thick pieces of garlic toast from French bread to top the bowl of soup. Top with 2 slices of Swiss cheese and place under broiler until melted and bubbly.
