Crockpot French Onion Soup

Thank you for sharing!

For my Beauty & The Beast Inspired date, we had French Onion Soup. So, it would be ready when we got home from our date I made it in the crockpot.

French Onion Soup

  • 3 large onions, sliced (3 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons  butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Pepper to taste
  • 4 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) ready-to-serve beef broth ( I did mine with 1/2 red wine to give it a little more flavor- it is great either way)

Cheesy Broiled French Bread

  • 8 slices French bread, 1 inch thick
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Garlic Powder
  • Oregano


  1. Put the butter and onions in the crockpot on high for about 2 hours. Before placing the lid on, place 2 paper towels under the lid to catch extra condensation. This will help the carmelization of the onions. After 2 hours, let onions continue to carmelize for another 8 hours. 
  2. 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).
  3. Prepare Cheesy Broiled French Bread. Place 1 slice bread on top of each bowl of soup.
