I love soups that can be eaten as a full meal, and this one didn't disappoint. I simmered the soup for about 20 minutes near the end as it tasted pretty bland, and that really brought out the flavor. It really tasted like a french dip in soup form! Next time I'll try using garlic bread instead of plain bread for added flavor. [Made & Reviewed for PAC Spring 2013]
This soup was good, but it was pretty bland. I did like the addition of the roast beef.
I have been making this recipe for a couple years. It is very easy and delicious!!! I take it one step further by using french onion crocks and broiling provolone and swiss cheeses on top.
Very good! My family loved it. My DH especially loved the addition of the roast beef.
DH loved this. I used vidalia onions. I found that I had to cook my onions a LOT longer in order to carmelize them. No biggie. For the bread, I toasted a slice of french bread in the oven topped with swiss cheese and poured the soup over that for a nice presentation.
This was delicious comfort food at it's best! A friend made this, after seeing RR's show, for me when I had shoulder surgery. I'm so glad you put the recipe here because it's a keeper for us. BTW, my DH also went back for seconds on this and happily ate the leftovers for lunch the next day!
We just got done having dinner. This is sooooo good. Hubby went back for seconds and was grinning ear to ear. This sure was a nice change from the normal. When I make french onion soup I usually made roast beef swiss melts. So this really just combined the two with less fuss. I used a loaf of sour dough bread and toasted in the oven. Yumm-o!!! Thanks for sharing RR recipe with us.
