Don's Favorite French Onion Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by lazyme

This is my husband's favorite French Onion Soup. It's really quick and simple. Better yet, he doesn't know that the recipe is from a book named Quick and Healthy (wink).

Definitely a five star. Easy, quick and tastee. I only had two bowls that were oven safe so I cut to two servings. I used the instant beef bullion with 2 1/2 cups of water. I used red onion and added 1/3 stalk of celery, and a pinch of dried basil. Wow! I served it with additional french bread grilled with butter and sprinkled Tone's Garlic-Herb seasoning. My wife doesn't say wow often except with our 10 month old grandson. She said "Wow!" twice.
