Even though it's a restaurant staple and a true "everyone's favorite," making French onion soup from scratch may be a real pain. For that reason, you may avoid the strain of constant stovetop effort by preparing it in a slow cooker. All you have to do to make the recipe below is throw everything into a slow cooker and set the timer for the desired amount of time.
The onions get a rich caramelized taste during the first few hours of cooking in the slow cooker. Toss in the broth, sherry, and spices, and simmer on low for another hour to combine the flavors. Garnish your ovenproof cups with cheese and croutons for a homemade version of restaurant-style French onion soup that will make you want to "pick the broiled cheese off the side of the mug"!
