Slow Cooker French Onion Country Apple Soup With Cinnamon Cheese Toast

1/4 cup olive oil
4 large yellow onions, thinly
sliced into rings
3 apples, peeled and diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose
5 cups low-sodium beef
1/2 cup apple cider
1 tablespoon Worcestershire
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon black pepper,
freshly ground
6 slices French bread, cut
1/2-3/4-inch thick
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups hickory-smoked
Gruyère cheese, shredded
6 slices turkey bacon, cooked
and crumbled (optional)

Heat oil in a large skillet.

Add onion slices and cook on medium heat until transparent, stirring frequently to avoid sticking.

Add apples and garlic; stir until warmed through.

Transfer the onion-apple mixture to a slow cooker and add in beef broth, apple cider, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, salt, thyme and black pepper. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Before serving, place French bread slices on a baking sheet. Top each with 1/4 cup Gruyère cheese, sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and broil for 1-2 minutes, until just browned.

Garnish soup with turkey bacon crumbles and apple slices. Serve bread alongside each bowl of soup.
