  • “I have made this recipe several times – love it – and I know that I reviewed before but the review is goneSOoooo once again this is a super recipe! Wonderful to have on hand to serve as a condiment or a side dish.This time I made it vegetarian by using Vegetable broth instead of Chicken or beef – equally good. I used it on a sausage in a bun for dinner last night and this morning as a side dish for my Sunday Brunch. 8 hours on high gets the onions really golden and ever so good -I said it before and I say it now Cajun Joe thanks for posting this recipe. 22 May 2010I keep adding to this review but these onions are so darn good! The 8 hours on high is just perfect timimg Thanks again Cajun Joe”
