Made for Hail to the Chefs-Food Network Challenge in Cooking Photos. I liked it, however, I think that good ole French Onion Soup is better with beef broth. This was tastier the second day after blending flavors in the fridge. Thanks for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large saucepan over medium heat, fry 4 bacon strips of bacon until crisp. Discard bacon. Saute onions and shallots in bacon fat until tender, about 10 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar, wine and oregano; cook for 30 minutes. Stir frequently until the onions caramelize and are golden brown.
  2. Blend in chicken broth. Simmer gently for 1 hour, stir occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Ladle soup into 4 ovenproof bowls. Float the croutons on top of soup and sprinkle with grated cheese. Broil until cheese melts. Garnish with flat-leaf parsley.
