Rich French Onion Soup

Bring out this savory soup when entertaining guests while you're waiting for the main course. It's simple to make-just sauté the onions early in the day and let the soup simmer until dinner-time. In winter, big bowls of it make a warming supper with a salad and biscuits.


10 servings


6 large onions, chopped
1/2 cup butter
6 (10.5 ounce) cans beef broth
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
3 bay leaves
10 slices French bread, toasted
shredded Parmesan and shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


In a large skillet, saute onions in butter until crisp-tender. Transfer to an ungreased 3-quart slow cooker. Add the broth, Worcestershire sauce and bay leaves.

Cover and cook on low for 5 to 7 hours or until the onions are tender. Discard bay leaves. Top each serving with French bread and cheeses.
