How to Make Caramelized Onions (in a slow cooker!)

Caramelized onions have a great, sweet flavor with just a little onion-y kick. They are great on pizza, in frittatas or omelets, on salads or part of grilled veggie sides… so many great uses! Usually, they are quite labor intensive, but the slow cooker makes these really simple.
