French Onion Soup Crockpot Recipe

French Onion Soup Crockpot Recipe

Ingredients needed:

* 6 onions, thinly sliced
* 3 tablespoons of melted butter
* 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar
* 8 cups of beef broth
* 1 teaspoon of salt
* 1 teaspoon of cracked black peppercorns
* 2 tablespoons or brandy or cognac
* 12 slices baguette, about 1/2 inch thick
* 2 cups of Shredded Swiss cheese

Preparation steps:

* In crockpot, combine onions and butter. Stir well to coat onions thoroughly. Cover and cook on high for 45 minutes until onions are softened.
* Add sugar and stir well. Place two clean tea towels, each folded in half (so you will have four layers), over top of crockpot to absorb moisture. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, stirring two or three times to ensure that onions are browning evenly, replacing towels each time.
* Add broth, salt, pepper and brandy or cognac. Do not replace towels, cover and cook on high for 2 hours.
* Preheat broiler. Ladle soup into ovenproof bowls. Place 2 slices of baguette in each bowl. Sprinkle liberally with cheese and broil until top is bubbly and brown (about 3 minutes).

Serve immediately and enjoy
