I really enjoyed the soup I found out the hard way was that I gave away my onion soup Bowls so I put it in foil tins. Hey it worked. Made for ZWT5 for Cooks with Dirty Faces. Can this be frozen at all. I would love to make up a bunch and freeze them.
Quick and simple! I deglazed the pan with apple cider vinegar before adding the broth. I cubed 3 slices of frozen bread, threw them in the toaster oven for a few minutes, poured melted butter on them, then topped with shredded swiss and toasted again- made a great topping! For ZWT4 Flying Duchess'
We had this as part of dinner last night. Easy to prepare & great results. French onion soup (except for packet mix, which we use for making dip), so it was great to have this again. Will definitely make this again.
This was very good and easy to prepare. I think that some sherry or other cooking wine would really enhance the flavors though. Thanks karenbear!
This was lovely... an easy recipe that was easy to make fairly quickly for lunch. DO be careful that if you cut this down to two servings and use commercial beef stock that it doesn't turn out too salty, ours was borderline on the salt, it was tasty but becuase of the salt I couldn't have had a second helping. Next time I will dilute the commerical stock or make my own where I can make it low salt.(I didn't have any of my own stock in the freezer at the moment). Croutons are one food that I simply don't ever fancy eating so I left them out and just grilled some creese and floated it on the top.. yum! Years ago I tasted a French onion soup that had the magic of that special aomething extra, and I have been searching ever since for something that migt come close to it. Sadly this one doesn't but there's absolutelt nothing wrong with the taste of this either. Please see my rating system: a good recipe that I will adapt to reduce the salt and that will do very nicely indeed for some future wintertime lunches. Thanks!
I made this last night because I wanted to make something easy and because my husband and I both love French Onion Soup. I put enough croutons in to cover the top of the bowl. We have normal size bowls and this made enough to fill 2. So, if you are making this as your main meal, you may want to keep that in mind. It was very good and super easy which is what made it a 5 star recipe. I also liked it because the ingredients are always on hand, and I won't have to run to the store for french bread. Thanks!
