French Onion Soup
While I love all types of soup (really, I do!), french onion is at the tippy top of my favorites. If it’s on a menu at a restaurant, there’s a good chance I’ll order it. I can’t help myself with the awesome flavor and ooey gooey cheese. It used to be considered a poor person’s soup because onions were easy to grow. But it became a big hit in the US back in the 1960s and I’m grateful it did.
Here in the US, we serve it with a large piece of bread and lots of cheese. It’s usually a side dish or a starter for a meal but I could eat bowls and bowls of it and be full. You too?

Slow Cooker French Onion Soup
While there are a few ways to make French Onion Soup, I love this version. You throw everything into a crockpot and give it a go. The most work takes place with slicing all of the onions beforehand. If you are like me and love kitchen gadgets, then you might want to invest in a slicer or a mandoline (though you might cut your fingers off… consider yourself warned).
