This was quick and tastes wonderful. My DH is an avid onion soup fan, he had two bowls! I put mozzarella on his bowl and swiss on mine, (I love swiss)! No French bread but homemade croutons were a great substitute. I also added 1t of Kitchen Bouquet which enhanced the flavors and gave it that dark rich color. I'll make this often as the winter winds will be blowing all too soon and this will be great comfort food. thanks.

This is delicious! I only wish there were an easy way to slice the onions. Other than that, this is a new staple in our house. Thank you, John! (I hope my photo does it justice.)

This was excellent - I especially love recipes that call for things I always have on hand. I don't understand Lens's criticism at all, since Gruyere is a cheese from Switzerland - it should be clear that the origin of the cheese is not from where French Onion Soup gets its name.

Mozzarella? That would make it Italian Onion Soup? French Onion Soup is topped with gruyere. Another blunder is people using swiss.

This is great! I didn't know I could recreate my favorite restaurant's French Onion Soup at home. I added a little white wine and used Gruyere cheese melted on toasted sourdough rounds and it was heaven. Thanks!
