    Maura666's Note:

    This crockpot version is elegant, but inexpensive and very easy to put together -- my husband loves it! I usually serve mine with a salad & freshly-baked loaf of bread. Lots of other French onion soup recipes seem to call for an extreme amount of butter, but I've found that 1 or 2 tablespoons, along with some well-browned onions, will yield a lovely rich flavor.

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook the onions in butter over medium/low heat for 20 minutes or until browned.
    2. 2
      (You want the onions to be a golden color, but NOT black!) Remove from heat, and set aside.
    3. 3
      Mix sugar, flour, a few dashes of pepper& rosemary, and 2/3 cup of the wine into a paste mixture.
    4. 4
      Add this to the onions, and mix well.
    5. 5
      Put the onion mixture into the crockpot.
    6. 6
      Add broth and bay leaves.
    7. 7
      Stir soup mixture very gently. (Stirring doesn't have to be overly thorough... just enough so that the onions are no longer a paste.)
    8. 8
      Cook on "high" for 2 1/2 hours.
    9. 9
      Add soy sauce, buillon cubes, and remaining 1/3 cup of wine.
    10. 10
      Cover and continue cooking for 30 minutes.
    11. 11
      Ladle into soup bowls and enjoy!

      Hi! :) I made this last week, and it was deeelicious! Great comfort food on a cold night! I added croutons and mozz. cheese, after I ladled into mugs. It was sooo good! Thank you for the recipe!
