The best french onion soup I have ever had & not wanting to drink 10 gallons of water after it. Most french onion soups have 2,000 mg or more of sodium in them. This one only has about 476 mg.

  • Prep Time: 40
  • Cook Time: 7 hours
  • Total Time: 7 hours 40 minutes


5 Large Sweet Onions, sliced
5 Large Red Onions, sliced
2 sticks Unsalted Butter
3× 14 oz. cans 98% Fat Free Lower Sodium Beef Broth
2½ cup Water
3 Packets Herb*ox Sodium Free Beef Bouillon
1½ tsp Worcestershire Sauce
3 Bay Leaves

Olive Oil
Sargento Lower Sodium Mozzarella Cheese, i used about 3 packages for the whole soup


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Saute sweet onions in 1 stick butter until crisp tender - about 20 minutes. Transfer to crock pot. Do the same with the red onions.

2. Add beef broth, water, bouillon powder. Mix well. Add worcestershire & bay leaves.

3. Cover. Cook on low 7 hours or until onions are tender. Discard bay leaves.

4. About 1/2 hour before soup is ready....slice french bread into 1" thick slices. Place on cookie sheet & spread olive oil over each slice. Bake 15-20 minutes until nice & crisp.

5. When soup is done, preheat broiler to high. Ladle soup into bowls. Place toast on top of soup. Sprinkle with mozzarella & place under broiler for 2-3 minutes until cheese is all melty & brownish in color. Enjoy!
