I like to make Slow Cooker French Onion soup as a before dinner soup, but sometimes I just make it for the meal as it is one of those tasty and enjoyable soups!

  1. Add butter to a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Once butter is just starting to melt, add the onions.
  3. Increase heat to medium-high and cook onions for about 10 minutes.
  4. Add wine to deglaze skillet.
  5. Add onion mixture into a 6-Quart slow cooker.
  6. Add remaining ingredients except bread and cheese. Stir.
  7. Cook on High for 4 hours or Low for 6-7 hours.
  8. Dish soup into oven-safe individual bowls.
  9. Place a toasted piece of French bread on each bowl of soup and top with shredded cheese.
  10. Place bowls on a baking sheet then brown under the broiler for about 2 minutes or until cheese is bubbling.
