Spectacular French Onion Soup

Spectacular French Onion Soup created by lazyme

This is the best and easiest French Onion Soup. I use mozzarella cheese sometimes instead of swiss. I also use beef bouillon mixed with water if I have no broth on hand.

  • In a large saucepan over low heat, melt butter with olive oil. Cook onions in mixture, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes, until very soft, translucent and brown on the edges.

  • Preheat oven broiler.
  • Toast the bread slices. Ladle the soup into 6 ovenproof bowls and place the bowls on a baking sheet. Place a toasted slice of bread over each bowl and top with Swiss cheese.
  • Place bowls under broiler until cheese is melted.

    I love this recipe.This is the best French Onion soup I have ever made. My only changes were a dash of paprika while the onions were cooking for color . My white wine was a pinot gres and I used provolone cheese and fresh grated Parmesan. Don't hesitate to try this one. It is VERY VERY good.

    This is a yummy soup! Very flavorful and very easy to make! I used swiss cheese with this because that's my favorite. I will make again!

    As you said... Spectacular! This is a simple and wonderful soup. We very much enjoyed it. We each had 2 bowls and I used Swiss cheese on the first one and Mozzarella on the 2nd one. I decided that I liked the mozzarella better, but that's just personal preference. Thanks mosma for posting this delicious soup.
