French Onion Soup:
4-6 Onions (About 8 Cups), Sliced Thinly
5 Garlic Cloves, Minced
2 Tbsp. Light Butter
6 C. Reduced Sodium Beef Broth
1/2 C. Guinness Draught Beer
1 Tbsp. Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce
1 Bay Leaf
1 Tsp. Red Wine Vinegar
1/4 Tsp. Dried Rosemary
1/4 Tsp. Dried Thyme
Salt & Pepper To Taste

6 Slices French Bread (1 Oz. Each)
6 Oz. Irish Cheddar, Sliced (I used Kerrygold, Aged)

Place onions, garlic, and butter into your slow cooker. Cover and cook on high heat setting for 45 minutes to an hour or until onions begin to soften.

Stir broth, beer, soy sauce, bay leaf, vinegar and spices into the onions. Cover and cook on low heat setting 6 to 8 hours (or high heat setting 3 to 4 hours) or until onions are very tender.

Once the soup is finished, remove the bay leaf.

Right before serving, preheat oven broiler and set out individual slices of french bread onto a baking sheet. Top bread slices with 1 oz. of the cheese each.

Broil until the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned.

Ladle soup into bowls and top with toasted 'croutons'.
