Cooking Time:5-7 hours
Ingredients6 onions, large, chopped
1/2 c. butter
5 cans - 10.5 oz each condensed beef broth, undiluted (I use low-sodium)
1 c. cooking Sherry
1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
3 bay leaves
10 French bread slices, toasted
Shredded Parmesan and shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
With a soup like Slow Cooker French Onion Soup it is versatile, as you can make it for guests before you serve them a main meal, or you can serve it in a big bowl for dinner at home.
- Saute onions in butter until crisp-tender in a skillet.
- In a 5-qt. slow cooker, place the saute onions, adding the broth, cooking Sherry, Worcestershire sauce and bay leaves.
- Cover. Cook on Low for 5-7 hours or until the onions are tender.
- Discard bay leaves.
- Ladle soup into ovenproof bowls.
- Top bowls with a slice of toast, topping with cheese.
- Place the bowls on a baking sheet.
- Lightly brown under your broiler for 2-3 minutes.
NOTE: To make Vegetarian, use vegetable broth instead of beef broth!

When do you use the sherry for the french onion soup?
Vanessa… so sorry, I have updated the recipe, I must have missed it when I was typing! Thanks for letting me know! Happy Crocking!
I was thinking maybe we just drank it while we chopped the onions .. LOL
Can you use the same recipe in a larger size slow cooker (like at 6.5 qt.)?
Yes, that would be okay. Thanks for your question & Happy Crocking!
Do you know how many weight watchers points a serving would be?
I don’t Jennifer, but my mother-in-law said there was a program on the internet that could convert to points when she was on weight watchers. Hope this helps! Happy Crocking!
It’s 8 points.
Jennifer, Mary P just posted it is 8 points for weight watchers.
so do you use sherry or not?
Sandra, I actually prefer a sherry or wine I have on hand and not cooking sherry, but I know others like to use cooking sherry, so I keep it on the recipe knowing the ones that don’t like cooking sherry will substitute with what they like. Thanks for the question, and Happy Crocking!
