  1. In a 3- ½- or 4-quart slow cooker, combine onions and potatoes (see Tip).

  3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 3- ½ hours. Stir gently before serving. Serve with a slotted spoon. If desired, spoon some of the cooking juices over potatoes to moisten. If desired, sprinkle with additional pepper.
