I don't use any booze in my French Onion soup, but I do use a good beef stock, garlic toasts and fresh cheese for the top.

Julia often had more than one recipe for a dish. I have one that calls for beef broth, white wine and brandy.

I thought they called the bowls French onion soup is baked in crocks. I didn't mean I was going to add the cheese and croutons to the crock pot. Maybe my terminology is off.
The bowls might be called crocks. I don't know. I misunderstood you. I had visions of you adding the croutons and cheese to the crock pot.

That would be a cheesy, mooky mess, Taxy

I suppose since it's only "semi-instant" it can be played with. Maybe whatever broth I have opened in the fridge, but I'm leaning towards beef
My goal is to take a mini-puck and add the rest of the ingredients, then bake it. Something I could throw together in five minutes and let the oven do the rest.

Once the onions are caramelized, all you really have to do is simmer with the liquids for a few minutes then add the croutons and cheese and under the broiler to melt the cheese.

Thanks. Sounds like the toaster oven will work perfectly then. I can simmer everything on low, then add the cheese and croutons and crank it up to broil.

I do the simmering on the stovetop but a toaster oven will do the trick.

I cooked up "ramen" soup for Shrek. Cooked the chicken with the soy sauce, divided into 2 ounce portions and then the cooked noodles, divided in to servings. Froze each in ziplocks and all he has to do is toss it in a bowl add a cup of water and, ta da in the microwave...soup!

can't wait to make my first potful of 'almost instant' next week! i'll be following the recipe, and adding soy sauce to the pot. to the chicken broth i'll be adding beef consommé, for its robust beefiness, oh yea, and splashes of Beaujolais wine (only not too much, ya gotta leave enough for drinking) to bring it all home. oh yeah, it's gonna be killer! :)
