RE: Angela_id, your French onion soup! (Follow-Up #4)

This only makes about 2 big bowls, I double the recipe (for just 2 of us)

Crockpot French Onion Soup

2 cans of beef broth
3 T butter
2 yellow onions
1/2 T granulated sugar
1/4 cup cooking sherry
1/2 t kosher salt (you might need more if your butter isn't salted)
slices of brown rice bread (or french bread)
gruyere cheese (swiss could work too)

Heat your crockpot to high and plop your butter in to start melting
slice the yellow onions into rings
break up the onion slices with your fingers, and rub them around in the melted butter
add the beef broth, sugar, salt, and sherry
cook on high for 6-8 hours or low for 10-12. It takes a while for the onions to get translucent and pliable

Before serving:
--preheat oven to the broiling option
--toast 4 slices of the bread that you are going to use. That Trader Joe's brown rice bread needed to be toasted twice in my toaster to get to the desired crunchiness.
--cut gruyere cheese into slices
--put the cheese onto the toasted bread, and carefully float the bread and cheese on the top of the soup
--remove stoneware from crockpot and place the UNCOVERED stoneware into the oven
--broil for a minute or two--the cheese should be all melty and turn a golden color

ladle into 4 bowls.
