Slow Cooker French Onion Soup

I wanted to share a deliciously easy meal I made last week for small group. It was a great meal to serve after work for a large group with a salad. 


Here is the recipe compliments of Betty Crocker:


large onions, sliced (3 cups)

tablespoons margarine or butter, melted

tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon pepper

cans (14 1/2 ounces each) ready-to-serve beef broth

Cheesy Broiled French Bread

slices French bread, 1 inch thick

3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (3 ounces)

tablespoons grated or shredded Parmesan cheese

  • Place Reynolds™ Slow Cooker Liners inside a 5- to 6 1/2 -qt slow cooker bowl. Make sure that liner fits snugly against the bottom and sides of bowl and pull the top of the liner over rim of bowl.
  • In lined slow cooker, mix onions and margarine.
  • Cover and cook on high heat setting 30 to 35 minutes or until onions begin to slightly brown around edges.
  • Mix flour, Worcestershire sauce, sugar and pepper. Stir flour mixture and broth into onions. Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 9 hours (or high heat setting 3 to 4 hours) or until onions are very tender.
  • Prepare Cheesy Broiled French Bread. Place 1 slice bread on top of each bowl of soup. Serve immediately.

My Revisions

I really wanted the onions to turn out well so I sauteed the onions with the butter on the stove top instead of putting them in the crock on high. I didn't even use the liner and didn't need it by going this route. The onions were perfect and I would highly recommend it!

I toasted the bread instead of broiling and it turned out just a delicious.
