French Onion Soup with Provalone Recipe

Publisher Photo
I ADAPTED a basic recipe to copy the onion soup served at my favorite restaurant. No matter what my entree, I always ordered the soup. Now I can make it at home. It's a meal in itself or an impressive beginning to a full-course meal. -Barbara Brunner, Steelton, Pennsylvania

"Love this! I tried this French onion soup several years ago and this is the recipe I keep coming back to. Instead of the nutmeg, I use a dash apple pie spice and I'm certain that's what makes this soup outstanding."
