REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I prefer french onion soup in the crock pot over the usual stovetop method because the onion flavor is richer because of the long cooking time. Tastes just like the soup from a top restaurant. One note though, I don't use shredded swiss, I use thin slices overlapping slightly on the french bread rounds.
