    Wow! Thanks for sharing this. I have only made homemade onion soup once. It was great, but it took hours to caramelize the onion on the stove top. I had no idea it was such a process. Can't wait to try using the crock pot.
    When a dying man asked his pastor "How long does it take to die?" his pastor's heartfelt reply was "A lifetime." Live life to the fullest, but stop now and then to enjoy the sunset.

    The joy of this is you can set it to brew .... and go off and sew, with no need to fret about it!

    While we are on the subject of onions and the crock pot - it pays to put those onions in the fridge overnight before you start chopping/slicing, etc. I used to hate handling large quantities of onions until I started doing this - now I can do the batch pretty much tear-free.

    It's become one of my favourites too ... I can put it on to brew, forget about it and head to the sewing room!! What better?

    Thanks, I will be making this one too. I make it on the stove and it is slow, and needs watched. This sounds so easy.
    When I make it though, I sometime cheat and use croutons instead of bread, I find it doesnt taste soo gooey. And for a nice flavor add a teeny bit of Dijon mustard to your cheese. Yummy

    Here's another recipe of it to try. This was in one of the first Crockpot recipe books, 40 years ago and this is the recipe I have used, that long. Am waiting for it to cool to fall here in FL so I can fix it. It'll beat any recipe, homecooked or in a restaurant.

    CROCKPOT FRENCH ONION SOUP
    3 large onions, thinly sliced
    1/2 cup butter or margarine
    6 beef bouillon cubes
    4 cups hot water
    1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
    Sliced French bread (or you can use croutons)
    Grated Parmesan cheese

    In large skillet, cook onions in butter until lightly browned. In the crockpot, combine browned onions in the butter, with the bouillon cubes, water, Worcestershire sauce and salt. Cover and cook on low four to six hours. Makes four servings. To serve, top each bowl of soup with a toasted slice of French bread then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

    My tips are, I always double the recipe, because it's excellent reheated and I never add the salt, the bouillon cubes tend to be salty. This soup smells so good cooking all day. Hope you enjoy.

    Looks like I need a crockpot
    A balanced quilter is one with a project on each finger
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat


    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example

    Yes indeed ... it's the best thing ... you can let it do it's thing while you do your thing (ie sit and sew!)
