Bubba Don't Eat This Onion Soup With Melted Mozzarella

"Onion soup is probably my very favourite. I'm always trying new recipes to find the best that's out there. So far, I haven't found any that I like quite as much as my own. I'm hoping you will like it too. If you don't have leeks, just throw in an extra onion. Afterall....this is ONION soup! By the way....Bubba is one of my husbands many nicknames. He doesn't like onions......but we all know he gets them anyway. He just doesn't realize it. :)"

directions

  • In a large saucepan, melt butter.
  • Chop one onion until fine. I generally use my mini-chopper. Cut the remaining onions in half, then slice.
  • Add garlic, leeks and all the onions and the salt to the melted butter. Saute until soft. This should take approximately 15 minutes.
  • Cover and reduce the heat. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Add beef broth, water, pepper and tabasco sauce. Bring just to the boil.
  • Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • At this point, you may continue with the recipe, or cool and store in the fridge. Great for single servings!
  • To serve:.
  • Preheat oven or toaster oven (good for single servings) to the broil setting.
  • Ladle soup into an oven proof bowl. Top with a slice of the toasted bun.
  • Spoon on a few of the onions and top with a 1/4 cup shredded cheese.
  • Broil until the cheese has melted and is starting to brown.
  • Enjoy!

    It's a good soup, I used extra onions and some green onions instead of the leeks. I followed the receipe and used a whole wheat bun though. The bun soaked up all the soup and was really mushy, kinda gross. Next time, I think I'll used a harder bread like french or sour dough so it doesnt soak up the entire soup.

    This is just delicious. I skipped the leeks and added about 4 green onions. I didn't have the condensed beef broth so added 5 cups of beef broth and left out the water. I also added some beef granules to make the broth a little stronger. I also used garlic bread that I had made. I really liked the mozzarella cheese on this. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for the Soups On event in the Diabetic Forum. :)

    We love onion soup & this was perfect for a cold day. I used 5 large onions (no leeks) and liked that the amount wasn't skimpy in proportion to the broth. I used sliced cheese (had on hand) and toasted whole wheat bread. It all turned into a gooey, melty, oniony delight. Did I say *"yum"?* Thank you for sharing your recipe!

    This soup is a rich belly warmer. I particularly like the use of the leeks and the Tabasco Sauce. The mozzarella cheese was a nice change from using swiss cheese. I too (like lazyme) used roasted garlic bread with this soup. (made and reviewed for NZ/AUS recipe swap #27 April '09)

    Good onion soup. We particularly liked the leeks in this sweet onion soup. I used a piece of roasted garlic bread which also went well with the onions and cheese. Thanks Diana for a nice recipe.
