Slow Cooker Fancy French Onion Soup

  • Cooking Time:

    6-7 hours
  • Servings:

    8

Ingredients

1/2 c. butter
6 Vidalia onions, thinly sliced
1 tsp. sugar
2 T. flour
5 c. water
½ c. red wine
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
Salt & Pepper, to taste
42 oz. beef broth
1 Large French baguette
8 slices Swiss cheese



What an indulgence it is to have a really tasty Slow Cooker Fancy French Onion Soup.  Your guests or family will think you slaved away in the kitchen.  Shh…we won’t tell…

  1. Place butter in a large slow cooker and turn to High setting.
  2. Once butter is melted, stir in sugar.
  3. Place onions in butter, toss to coat; cover and cook on HIGH 3-4 hours, or until well caramelized. (No need to do this step if you have made my caramelized onions recipe previously).
  4. Stir in flour until well blended with the onion juices. Add water, red wine, Worcestershire, garlic, bay leaves, salt & pepper to taste, and beef broth.
  5. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 hours.
  6. Cut 8, 1-inch thick slices of bread from loaf. Toast the bread slices using a wide, bagel toaster or in a toaster oven.
  7. Ladle soup into oven-safe bowls. Place 1 slice of toasted bread on top of the soup in each bowl.  Top with a cheese slice.
  8. Place soup bowls on a baking sheet for easier handling.
  9. Broil just until cheese is melted and starting to brown.
  10. BE CAREFUL when handling bowls – they will be very HOT when you remove them from the oven!!

NOTE: If you have made my Slow Cooker Caramelized Onions previously, you can use these to make this soup. Just eliminate the onions and butter in this recipe, and follow the directions as stated.

Happy Crocking!

I think it’s so rude when someone posts a recipe and people have to say ‘ you NEED THIS’. Obviously, any recipe can be tweaked to suit your personal preferences.
I can’t wait to try this! I never thought of making French onion soup in the crock! Thank you for sharing!

I live in a very remote part of Northern California. The one store here doesn’t have Vidalia onions. Can I use yellow?

Is it possible to do this whole recipe on low? Away at work all day and hoping to make it a weeknight meal 🙂 Looks delicious!

Hi! I’m trying this recipe because it made sense to me and looks very good. But, here’s my only suggestion… Everything is pretty clear w/regard to amounts “42 oz.” beef stock etc. I’m an experienced cook so I can “guesstimate” but the onions should be converted e.g. “6 Vidalia onions” = 6 C or “X” oz. etc. That way, we can truly get the taste as you intended. As you know, they can range in size. I can’t always get Vidalia’s here in Utah either but I can get Walla Walla sweets which suffice but they can be huge. Thanks!… Read more »

Awesome! This is a winner. The only change I made was to use smoked Gouda. Always use Swiss – figured I’d kick it up a bit. Delish!! Thank you!

I tried this recipe yesterday. Unfortunately the 3 to 4 hours for browning the onions was not enough. They didn’t soften nor colour. Although I followed the directions, it didn’t turn out the way it should. Because I ran out of time, so no more time to add extra hours for caramelizing (i am sure I needed an extra 4 hours to brown the onions), that is why i continued with the next steps. The taste of the soup was good, but the onions hadn’t softened while boiling in the broth. Here in The Netherlands I couldn’t find Vidalia onions… Read more »

Made this recipe today. The recipe def needed some more seasoning so since we didn’t have any beef cubes (forgot to buy them at the store yesterday), we became crafty & put the seasoning in from dry onion soup mix. So, we’ll see how that turns out!

Can another type of broth be used other than beef? I am allergic to caramel coloring and that is usually in beef broth. I saw that someone asked about vegetarian broth…would chicken work too? Thanks! I love your recipes! 🙂

Why not make your own beef broth? I make it ahead and keep quarts in the freezer. If it’s not a self-defrosting freezer, they will keep for a couple of years.

Can the flour be omitted? Or us there a gluten free substitute? I gave up gluten and am still learning…
