Reviews for French Onion Soup with Provalone
"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."

"this was good but i didn't care for the nutmeg flavor in it. would skip that ingredient next time."
