Hi, friends! I’ve got another soup recipe for you today. With black bean, roasted tomato, and today’s French onion, I’m on a soup-making roll! I actually made this recipe about a year ago, but it’s deliciousness deserved a double post.
After looking at that post, my friend commented on how far my pictures have come. Made my day!
I absolutely love my crock pot. It is, hands down, the most used appliance during the colder months. I came across this recipe on a blog dedicated to just that…crock pot recipes. Genius, I tell ya!
Crock Pot French Onion Soup (based on this recipe) serves 4
- 2 cans of low sodium beef broth
- 3 tbsp butter
- 2 yellow onions
- 1/2 T granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 4 slices french bread
- swiss cheese (although gruyere would work great)
Heat your crockpot to high and plop your butter in to start melting
Add sliced onions to pot. Break up the onion slices with your fingers, and rub them around in the melted butter
Add the beef broth, sugar, and wine.
Cook on high for 6-8 hours or low for 10-12 until onions are translucent and pliable. That’s it!
Pop a couple pieces French bread in toaster or broiler. Put in mug.
Ladle soup into mug. (yummm)
Top with cheese and put in broiler to melt.
Then grab your spoon cause you are ready to eat!
This soup is just fabulous! I can’t sing it’s praises enough!
The melty cheese just takes it over the top!
Make sure to get a taste of bread, cheese, and soup with each bite!
The only thing…I would recommend slicing your onions real thin. I had a bit of a crying spell while slicing and therefore didn’t slice thin enough. It resulted in a few really big onion-y bites. Still delicious, but more of a mouthful than I would like.
Other Swanky Scoop:
-Living by myself, I often watch the TV while I’m eating. I guess it’s my form of company. This sparked my No TV While Eating Challenge! The hope is that I take more time to enjoy my food, but also to help prevent late night snacking. Feel free to join me!
-We all know I have a bit of a Starbucks obsession! Well, this weekend (November 17-20 from 2-5 pm) you can Buy One, Get One Free on their holiday drinks! You know I’ll be there!
I have a few fun things planned for the weekend including throwing my first clothing swap party! Should be a fun time. Have a great rest of your week!
