  • 1
    Place Reynolds™ Slow Cooker Liners inside a 5- to 6 1/2 -qt slow cooker bowl. Make sure that liner fits snugly against the bottom and sides of bowl and pull the top of the liner over rim of bowl.
  • 2
    In lined slow cooker, mix onions and margarine.
  • 3
    Cover and cook on high heat setting 30 to 35 minutes or until onions begin to slightly brown around edges.
  • 4
    Mix flour, Worcestershire sauce, sugar and pepper. Stir flour mixture and broth into onions. Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 9 hours (or high heat setting 3 to 4 hours) or until onions are very tender.
  • 5
    Prepare Cheesy Broiled French Bread. Place 1 slice bread on top of each bowl of soup. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • Serve food directly from the lined slow cooker. Once your slow cooker cools, remove the liner and throw away for easy clean up.
  • Here's some "broth math" to help you if don't have any ready-to-serve beef broth on hand. You can use three 10 1/2-ounce cans of condensed beef broth with 2 1/2 soup cans of water or 7 cups of your homemade beef broth. Or add 7 cups of water with 7 beef bouillon cubes or 2 heaping tablespoons of beef bouillon granules.
  • Vegetarians in your family? Use 4 cans of ready-to-serve vegetable broth instead of the beef broth. The color will not be a rich, deep brown, though, so Golden French Onion Soup may be a more appropriate name!
