For all of those French onion soup lovers out there, here's one that can cook while you are doing everything else you have to do during your day. I got this one from Quick Cooking magazine.


  1. In a large skillet, sauté onions in butter until crisp-tender.
  2. Transfer to an ungreased 5-quart slow cooker/crock pot.
  3. Add the broth, Worcestershire sauce, and bay leaves.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 5 to 7 hours or until the onions are tender.
  5. Discard bay leaves.
  6. Top each serving with french bread and cheeses.

Scrolling through for crock-pot recipe today and discovered this one. YUP! have tried it and loved it! Came as close to French Onion Soup made at one of my favorite restaurants. It makes a big batch, smell wonderful cooking, and reheats well! Thanks for sharing it!

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.
