Slow Cooker Caramelized Onion Gratin
Slow cookers are great to use...esp. in the summer so they don't heat up your kitchen.
6 onions, thinly sliced, vertical (Valdalia if you have them)
3 tbsp melted butter
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
½ cup shredded Swiss cheese
1. In the slow cooker, combine onions and 2 tbsp butter and stir well.
2. Place a clean towel folded in half across the top of the crock before you place the cover on - this is done to absorb moisture. Cook on low for 6 hours.
3. Add paprika, salt, and pepper and combine. Preheat broiler to 500 degrees.
4. Add in bread crumbs and 1/2 of the cheese. Drizzle with remaining butter and transfer to a baking dish. Top with remaining cheese and broil until it becomes melty.
