Slow Cooker French Onion Soup

Recently, I rediscovered the Betty Crocker recipe website.  I've perused the page before, but kinda forgot about it.  I was hungry when I clicked through countless recipes and so ended up with many dinner ideas.

An image of French Onion soup was on the entry page which immediately caught my eye.  Today, I stocked up on the necessary ingredients.  My picture didn't turn out as nice as the website photo, but the soup was tasty.
Here's what you will need
large onions, sliced (3 cups)
tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
tablespoons all-purpose flour
tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
teaspoon sugar
teaspoon pepper
cans (14 1/2 ounces each) ready-to-serve beef broth
Cheesy Broiled French Bread
slices French bread, 1 inch thick
cup shredded mozzarella cheese (3 ounces)
tablespoons grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1Mix onions and margarine in 3 1/2- to 6-quart slow cooker.
  • 2Cover and cook on high heat setting 30 to 35 minutes or until onions begin to slightly brown around edges.
  • 3Mix flour, Worcestershire sauce, sugar and pepper. Stir flour mixture and broth into onions. Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 9 hours (or high heat setting 3 to 4 hours) or until onions are very tender.
  • 4Prepare Cheesy Broiled French Bread. Place 1 slice bread on top of each bowl of soup. Serve immediately.
