Slow Cooker French Onion Soup

  • Cooking Time:

    5-7 hours
  • Servings:



6 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.

  1. Saute onions in butter until crisp-tender in a skillet.
  2. In a 5-qt. slow cooker, place the saute onions, adding the broth, cooking Sherry, Worcestershire sauce and bay leaves.
  3. Cover. Cook on Low for 5-7 hours or until the onions are tender.
  4. Discard bay leaves.
  5. Ladle soup into ovenproof bowls.
  6. Top bowls with a slice of toast, topping with cheese.
  7. Place the bowls on a baking sheet.
  8. Lightly brown under your broiler for 2-3 minutes.

NOTE: To make Vegetarian, use vegetable broth instead of beef broth!

Can you use the same recipe in a larger size slow cooker (like at 6.5 qt.)?
