French Onion Soup


I love french onion soup but in the back of my mind I had it that it must be very difficult to make. I'd never actually consciously thought about it so when I saw this recipe come through a recipe group and skimmed I knew it was on the menu!  I covered it with croutons and then lots of sliced swiss. Yum!!
*half recipe for next time*


French Onion Soup
7 medium onions, thinly sliced (about 7 cups)
1/4 cup butter
3 cup beef broth*
1 cup water
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/8 tsp pepper

In a large skillet, saute onions in the butter, cooking until tender, about 20 minutes. Place onions and butter into a crock pot. Add the beef broth, water, Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours. If desired, serve with cheese, crackers or croutons.*3 bouillon cubes dissolved in 3 cups of water can be used instead of beef broth.
