I am just trying a crockpot version as we "write." New - no guarantees. I think I got it from cdkitchen.com
Here's a link I found to another recipe:
Back to the stove!
I have done onion soup using a crock pot as well, just a bit differently than the recipe above. I just put thinly sliced onions (a few cups) into the CP with a stick of butter and cook on low all day (8 hours). This eliminates the lengthy step of having to carmalize the onions on the stovetop, which is a big plus for me, as I don't have that kind of time! Transfer the onion mixture to a pot on the stovetop and add some dry white wine (about 3/4 cup) and simmer until it reduces. Add some beef stock and a couple of pinches of thyme and simmer for 15 minutes or so. Serve with toasted bread slices topped with cheese (my favorite is gruyere, but you can use swiss if you like).
This isn't a French Onion Soup recipe, but I don't think you'd be disappointed.
