Crock Pot Caramelized Onions - So Easy but So Good!! #recipe

Ohh my goodness, you guys!

Alright seriously though – I love caramelized onions. Love Love Love! I used to love raw onions too but I found that each time I had raw onions, or even onions that were thrown in for an omelette, my tummy would not be very happy with that. Thankfully I don’t have that issue with grilled or caramelized onions – and thank Goodness for that because these babies are deeeee-licious!
