“Sweetened with brown sugar and slow cooked, these Caramelized Onions and Potatoes make a perfect flavorful side dish.”


    • 2 large sweet onions (such as Vidalia, Maui, or Walla Walla), thinly sliced (2 cups)
    • 1½ pounds tiny new potatoes, halved
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
    • ½ cup lower-sodium beef or reduced-sodium chicken broth
    • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
    • Ground black pepper


  • 1 In a 3- ½- or 4-quart slow cooker, combine onions and potatoes (see Tip).
  • 2 In a small bowl, combine melted butter, broth, brown sugar, salt, and the ¼ teaspoon pepper. Pour mixture over onions and potatoes in cooker.
  • 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.
  • Tip: For Easy Cleanup: Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
