Using prepared ingredients makes this an easy soup to assemble. The slow cooker allows it to cook while you do other things! How easy is that?

  • Servings: 8
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 4 hours


5 Small Onions, thinly sliced
2× 14 oz cans Low Sodium Beef Broth
2× 10 oz Beef Consomme
1 Packet Dry Onion Soup Mix
8 slices French Bread, about 1" thick
1 cup Shredded Gruyere Cheese


Combine onions, broth, consomme and soup mix in a slow cooker. Cook on high setting for 4 hours, or on low for 8 hours. Ladle soup into serving bowls. Top with a slice of French bread. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese over each bread slice. Place heatproof soup bowls under broiler until cheese has melted. Alternatively, place the bread on a baking sheet and top with cheese, then broil until cheese has melted, 30-40 seconds and set on top of soup just before serving.

Helpful Tips:

I use Swanson broth, Campbells consomme and and Lipton soup mix.
