"When you’re in the mood for a warm and savory comfort food, this slow cooker French onion soup is a great choice as it’s a classic and amazingly delicious. This is a long, slow dish to cook that adds a nice aroma to your home. Despite the length of time, this is an easy recipe with mostly hands-off time while the slow cooker does the work. This recipe only takes 10 minutes to prep and then you let it cook in the slow cooker. A good French onion soup starts with caramelized onions. If you do it on the stove, this single step will take around 40 minutes. I don’t have the patience for that. So a better way of cooking the onion, in my opinion, is to caramelize it in a slow cooker, completely hands off."
