Easy Crock Pot Recipes – French Onion Soup

This recipe for Crock Pot French Onion soup came from good ole’ Betty Crocker.  Not only can she bake a cake, but she knows her way around a crock pot as well.  Who knew?

We had a huge onion harvest this year {the biggest one yet} and so I know I’ll be making this French onion soup recipe several more times this fall. The Handsome Husband really, really liked this soup, um, and the cheesy toast.  He ate like 4 slices.  What a little piggy!

Here you go.  It’s the easy soup ever.


3 large onions, sliced very thin
3 tablespoons melted butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 cans {14 1/2 ounces each} beef broth


Saute onions and butter of medium high heat until translucent and and slightly caramelized and set aside.  Mix together the flour, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, pepper and pour into the crock pot.  Add onions and stir.  Turn the crock pot on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours and cook.  Serve with garlic bread or cheesy toast.

    IF you want to get really into this…get a few pounds of grass fed marrow bones and cook them in the crock pot with enough water to cover them for at least 24 hours. Then add in very finely diced flavoring veggies (such as carrot, celery) and garlic. Cook another few hours. Use that for your soup base. I add salt, pepper and turmeric and more garlic. You can freeze the rest for another batch later.
