So when your stuck in the house on a crazy snow storm such as this what else is there to do but bundle up in heavy sweats, find a good movie and cook some delicious comfort food. I decided that French Onion soup would be so delicious and really warm the soul so I got to it. I've been experimenting more with a simple crock pot we bought a few months ago so I really wanted to try a French Onion Soup in my slow cooker and have the aromas of the soup fill the house. Cooking in a slow cooker is actually one of the simplest cooking techniques I have ever encountered. Throw in a few ingredients, set and eat. So simple.
French Onion soup is always delicious but to get the same taste at home is the best, and this recipe was just perfect.
Homemade Slow-Cooker French Onion Soup
Recipe and photos by A Healthy Jalapeno
3 medium onions, sliced thin
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon Worchester sauce
2 cups toasted croutons (or crusted french bread)
4 slices swiss cheese
Add first four ingredients to your crock pot, cover and cook on High for 6-8 hours.Once the soup is done, separate into individual bowls, add croutons and place a slice of cheese on the top of your bowl. Put each individual bowl in the oven or toaster oven for about 5 min on 300 degrees to melt the cheese.
Done and done... enjoy!
