Slow Cooker French Onion Soup
You do not HAVE to caramelize the onions, you CAN simply melt the butter in your crock, add the onions to coat them and then add all the ingredients and cook. HOWEVER, caramelizing the onions makes for a much much better soup!!!! :) If you like, simply put all the options out on the table and let people make their own! This seems to be the popular method when I have a craft night. People can make their own decisions about what they want in or on their soup!
