Just Like Panera's French Onion Soup

Top Review by ambroker726

I'm sorry, but this tastes absolutely nothing like Panera's French Onion Soup. It is not bad tasting, but again, not even close to what they sell at Panera. Very bland and underwhelming flavor. Very disappointed, was really looking forward to this. Ended up throwing out the entire batch...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. When the butter is melted, add sliced onions and saute for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring often, until onions turn brown.
  2. Add remaining ingredients for the soup to the pan and stir to combine. Heat soup until it's boiling, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.
  3. Serve with a 1/4 cup croutons floating on top followed by a 1 oz of shaved or shredded Asiago cheese.
