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?

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…
