I made this for the blizzard over the weekend, I did have to subsitute A! for the worcestershire sauce since I couldn't leave my house to go anywhere, so that could be the problem but it just seemed to be missing something. My husband loved it though.

While making the soup I did not believe that it would taste like restaurant French onion soup. Given time to cook it surpassed my hopes! Loved it!! Changes- used boullion cubes(Mccormick beef stock-7 of them) made it a bit salty for some but I liked it Did not do the bread and cheese part and it was perfectly fine and rich without that.

Everyone requests this recipe all of the time. I copied it for someone and lost my copy. I'm glad I found it again. Thanks, Michele

I have been really wanting to make French onion soup for a while now, but have been hesitant because I was afraid it would not turn out. This was delicious! I made no changes, except that I halved it. Dh really didn't want to try it because he didn't think he liked this kind of soup- he ate two bowls! I cooked the onions last night, and put them in the crockpot container last night. Then brought it out this morning. Super easy! Thanks for sharing!

I made this for tonight's soup course, since French Onion is my all-time favorite. I didn't use a slow-cooker, just simmered it on the stove for a couple of hours, and it was fantastic! As a low-carb'er, I skipped the bread but didn't miss it: this soup is just so yummy on its own! A definite keeper. Thank you!

I made this to serve today. It smells so good cooking. I took this to work, so I reheated it in my Nesco and I served a large round crouton with a slice of provalone cheese on top. The flavor was wonderful. Thank you for sharing this recipe. This was very easy for me to put together. I used my electric slicer to slice the onions.

I made Crock Pot Caramelized Onions Crockpot Caramelized Onions and had half of it left over. I decided to make French onion soup with the rest. Your recipe was easy to adapt using already cooked onions. I just used my onions in place of the onions and butter called for here. I placed my onions in the crockpot with the bay leaf, Worcestershire, and beef broth. Since the onions were already cooked, I only cooked on low for @ 4 hours. I used the French bread, but substituted Swiss cheese (our favorite) and placed individual ovenproof bowls under the broiler until cheese melted. It tasted so good, and it was really so easy using the crockpot. Next time I may add a splash of red wine. Thanks for the great recipe!
