Crockpot French Onion Soup

When your husband says “This is the best french onion soup I’ve ever had” you take a picture and share your recipe.
I often do “research” on a recipe I want to make, incorporating a bunch of different recipes (to modify for nutrients, quality of ingredients, and what we have on hand etc.), so when I hit the nail on the head, meaning it’s husband and toddler approved, I figure I better write it down! This recipe was so simple to make in the crockpot, with only a few ingredients! And let me tell you– I. Like. Simple. So when I say simple, I mean simple!  This recipe fits the bill!

32 oz. Organic Beef Broth (1 carton)

1 tbs. White Wine (optional)
1 tsp. Crushed Bay Leaf
1 tsp. Salt
