  1. Set a slow cooker on Low, and put in half of the butter to melt. Add the onions and apples; cover and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours.
  2. After the cooking time is up and apples and onions are soft, pour in the brandy, chicken broth and apple cider. Set the slow cooker to High and cook for 1 to 2 hours, until simmering.
  3. Preheat the oven broiler. Mix together the cinnamon, sugar and remaining butter. Spread onto one side of each slice of bread. Place bread cinnamon side up on a baking sheet, and broil until toasted, about 3 minutes. Remove from the oven, flip the slices over so the cinnamon is on the bottom. Sprinkle Gouda cheese on the top and return to the broiler until the cheese is melted.
  4. Ladle soup into serving bowls and top with slices of toast, cheese side up to serve.

This was really good. I didn't use a slow cooker. I cooked the onions (4 large)in a stick of butter over med-high heat for about 10 minutes, then I added the brandy, let it cook down a minute a...

This onion soup is a winner! It's very good and the cider gives it a nice "autumn" twist. Excellent!

I wouldn't make this again. The apple taste was too strong for me and husband wouldn't even finish his.

Wonderful fall soup!!! I leave out the brandy and use beef broth instead of chicken. It is wonderful.

We thought this was very good, just like our version a little better but this was fun to try! If you are looking for a little different this is it!

I really wanted to love this recipe, but it was just too strange with the apple cider. I liked the consistency of the apples and onions, next time I would elimate or drastically reduce the appl...

EXCELLANT!! AND EASY TO MAKE THE ONLY THING I ADDED WAS BEEF BOULLION WITH THE CHICKEN BROTH AND LARGE CAESAR STYLE CROUTONS INSTEAD OF PLAIN ITALIAN OR FRENCH BREAD. THANKS
