Yum
Check out this French Onion Soup recipe that is made in your crock pot!  You will totally say oui!

French Onion Soup

Oui!  Oui!  Oui!

Before you start, you will need some carmelized onions!  Very simple to do...


Carmelized Onions:
Slice 5-7 onions.  Place 1 Tbsp butter and 2 Tbsp olive oil into a pan.  Heat up the oil and then add your onions.  Add some salt.  Carmelize the onions for about 10-12 minutes.


Now for the soup!

Ingredients:
1 32 oz beef broth
1 32 oz chicken broth
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
5-7 carmelized onions
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
french bread slices
Swiss cheese slices
shredded mozzarella

Mix everything but the balsamic vinegar and place into the crock pot.  Cook on low heat for 4 hours.  Add in the balsamic vinegar.
Slice french bread.  Brush each slice with some olive oil.  Place under a broiler until lightly browned.
To assemble, put soup into oven ready crocks.  Top each crock with a slice of the french bread, 2 slices of Swiss cheese and 1/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese.  Place the crocks in the oven until the cheese melts.




This soup is full of sweet onions and the crock pot blends all the flavors together so well!  The cheese baked on top...just like what you would get in Paris!

Plug in the crock pot and say oui!  French Onion soup on the way!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet!
