Slow Cooker French Onion Soup


Slow Cooker French Onion Soup
2 lbs yellow onions, trimmed,halved and sliced (2qts)
1 box (32oz) beef broth
2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 cup White Wine or Water
2 Tbsp flour
6 thick slices sourdough or rustic loaf bread, crusts trimmed
1/2 Cup grated Parmesan or Swiss cheese
Cracked pepper, optional

Place sliced onions in to a 5 or 6 quart slow cooker. Add broth and thyme and stir.
Cover cooker with lid and cook on high setting 3 to 4 hours or until onions are tender.

Mix white wine (or water) with flour and stir into the slow cooker. Cover and continue to cook on high setting for 1 hour longer or until thickened.

Before serving, place bread slices on a baking sheet and top with cheese. Broil until cheese is bubbly. To serve, ladle soup into shallow bowls. Place one slice of hot cheesy bread into each bowl. Sprinkle with pepper to taste. Makes 1 1/2 quarts or 6 (1 cup) servings.


This was my first time making French Onion Soup.
 I did not add the thyme. I used White Wine and I added 3/4 Cups.
We enjoyed this recipe. I was surprised that both my boys liked it! I used Swiss cheese to top off our bread. Yummy! It was so good!

Do you like French Onion Soup? Do you have a favorite recipe?

  1. I do like it but I have to make it homemade if I want it vegetarian. This looks so good and makes me want to pull out my crock pot!! It's a much easier way to make it than cooking the onions for hours on the stove!

  2. What an easy way to make a delicious soup. I've seen lots of recipes this evening for soups, I need to get my slow cooker out of the cupboard and make a whole load to freeze for the next couple of months! Have a wonderful weekend xx

  8. Yum. I've never tried making it, because I thought it was hard, but yours looks approachable. For now, I have been buying from Trader Joe's a box of individual servings of frozen onion soup. It's pretty good if baked in the oven, not microwaved, but it takes 45 minutes. xoox Su

  9. I agree with Su. I have never made it, and I never order it at a restaurant because all the additives, etc. But this look delicious! I'm going to try it. Thanks for the recipe.

  10. I have never made it either and I am not generally a fan of thyme, so I was glad to see that you made it without and it was still yummy! Off to pin it! Thanks!

  11. Carla, we have French onion soup every Christmas Eve. Didn't have it this year though, as we had other goodies. I'm so glad that you learned to make it. Your family will love it for years to come. I was first introduced to it many years ago, and every since then I was hooked. :)

    Have a peaceful Sunday, Carla.

  14. I've always wanted to try this soup and never get to it, I think because of the time involved. But a crock pot version? I think you just made it possible! Thanks so much for sharing this :)

  15. My husband has a dire aversion to onions, so it probably will never get made in my house, but I do love onions myself and your soup looked fabulous! Awesome your sons liked it too! :)
