it's just not french onion soup without carmelization of the onions. this recipe is missing that special taste... tried adding pepper, herbs, and wine. still meh. in desperation added some dried toasted onions. little better. will be going back to the old school method of sweating and carmelizing the onions. feel like i just wasted a bunch of great organic onions trying this out : (

Super easy and yummy. Served it with toast and provolone on top (that's what I had on hand). My two year old lapped it up, will totes make this again!

This soup was a real winner in my household! Everyone loved it. It was simple and easy too, so extra points for that. I love letting my crock pot do the work for me. ;) I served mine in sourdough soup bowls, which I bought on impulse and needed to use. It was divine. This is definitely going on my permanent rotation... such a delicious and easy meal deserves to be made at least a couple of times per month!

Very good soup, most enjoyable with the swiss cheese. Served it up after 5 hours on high, but it would've been fine to leave cooking longer. Instead of croutons, I served it with garlic toast on the side, a good choice for dunking!

Let's see. The ease, the taste, the smell while it is cooking - what's not to love? I have cooked many recipes for French Onion Soup, and none have been this easy! I used Better Than Bouillon beef base to make the beef broth because it makes a nice, richly flavored broth. And I had some wonderful fresh organic onions. However, they were all ginormous! So I used two, which may have still been more onion than three medium ones. I probably would add another cup of broth, but that may be due to the size of the onions. Oh yes, I did use a mandoline to slice the onions nice and thin. This will be made again, and soon! Thank you very much!

Talk about easy! I followed Little Italy and added 1 additional onion. Also, I had some rind from my parmesan cheese that was begging to go into a soup pot so I tossed in a few pieces during the cooking process. I did not have Swiss cheese but did have fresh mozzarella and so I put a thin slice in each dish before serving the wonderful soup. The aroma will get you!

My DH made this for me last night. Alittle different than what we have made in the past. We used provolone chese, our preference. We liked the croutons instead of french bread we normaly have. Loved the odor of the soup when I came home... Not bad.
