French Onion Soup in Under an Hour

"I found this recipe on the back of the Swanson broth can. I am posting for ZWT3 as this is a classic French recipe and this seems a lot easier than most recipes and doesn't make a TON! There are 580 pages of results for French Onion Soup so I did the best I could to not duplicate! Hope this is ok and I hope this recipe turns out as good as it looks."

    I love French Onion soup and this was a really good version. I used white wine and broiled the bread and cheese for just a bit. Thanks taraph!

    I'm a huge fan of French Onion Soup, and I must say this is one of the BEST recipes I've tried on Zaar. The wine really adds a special something to this dish. The sugar is also pleasant, which you wouldn't really expect but it adds to the flavor of the onions. I did broil the toast and cheese for a minute or two before serving. Thanks so much for sharing. I will be making this many times!
