Crockpot French Onion Soup

   

I am all about soups during the winter! The crockpot becomes my best friend and I am happy to impress my family with some simple, but gourmet soups. This French Onion Soup is so quick to toss together. Serve in a bread bowl with melted cheese on top. Mmmmmm.... Mmmmm.... You're gonna LOVE it!

CROCKPOT FRENCH ONION SOUP

Begin with four large Onions. (Be sure that they are not rotten. Cutting open a rotten onion is about the worse smell in the world! experience is the worst!)

Crockpot French Onion Soup-1

Slice up those Onions. You can slice them whatever thickness you would like. The thinner you slice, the faster they will cook and become soft. I like to keep them with some substance.

Crockpot French Onion Soup-2

Add a little sugar.

Crockpot French Onion Soup-3

A bit of Flour.

Crockpot French Onion Soup-4

Yes. Garlic.

Crockpot French Onion Soup-5

Worcestershire Sauce.

Crockpot French Onion Soup-6

A little dried Thyme. If you have fresh Thyme hanging around your kitchen.... then by all means... Use it!

Crockpot French Onion Soup-7

A sprinkle of Black pepper. (no salt until the end please. You will be surprised how little salt you will use, if any at all)

A splash of Red Wine, Balsamic Vinegar, or Cooking Sherry gives this soup a real depth of flavor.
