Crock Pot Momma: Soup's On! French Onion
With so many things to love (Crock Pots, onions, cheese) I was flabbergasted at the fact I had yet to whip up one of my favorite soups, French Onion. I decided the time was now and made a plan to indulge in this delicious oowey gooey treat.
The ingredients called for:
- 1/4 c. butter
- 2 red onions, thinly sliced
- 2 yellow onions, thinly sliced
- 1/2 tsp. salt and pepper
- 1 tbs. sugar
- 1/4 c. white wine
- 2 2/3 c. veggie broth
- 2 c. water
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 8-10 slices of french bread
- 3 cups Swiss cheese
After the butter had softened, I stirred in the sugar, salt and pepper and cooked for an additional 20 minutes, making sure to stir periodically.
Once those onions were about to get shoveled into my mouth, I quickly moved them into the Crock Pot and added the wine, broth, water and thyme.
Once the soup had blended its scrumptious flavors it was time to put it in bowls and get bread-y and chees-ey! (My favorite part by far) I scooped the soup into oven safe bowls and topped with sliced french bread and a slice of Swiss cheese (in retrospect, shredded probably would have been a better choice).
I placed my soups into the oven with the broiler on, and watched the magic melting happen...in minutes!
I scooped a bit more soup on my bread/cheese layer for good measure and sat down to enjoy. BOY OH BOY, am I glad I finally made this classic!
