This onion soup was out of this world! I made this just as written, using swiss and smoked provolone cheeses to broil on the top. Usually the melted cheese and bread topping is the best part, but in this case, the soup itself was just as great. The Dijon added a nice flavor. I wish I would have doubled this recipe. Thanx for posting!

So good!! I LOVE French Onion Soup and this was a good one! Made for 1 serving which was a large bowl; could make for two if serving with a salad or sandwich. Made as written but used sliced provolone cheese since that is all that I had (besides cheddar). Made for Spring PAC 2013.
