It was a cool spring day when I came up with this sweet and creamy variation of traditional baked French onion soup. I top individual bowls with toasty buttered croutons and a sprinkling of Swiss cheese, then pop them under the broiler. The rich results are delightful!

This winter warmer has become a favorite because it uses kitchen staples, it's packed with healthy ingredients and is a cinch to prepare. If I can't find escarole, I just sub fresh spinach. —Gina Samokar, North Haven, Connecticut

"One night when my husband and I needed a quick supper, I threw together this satisfying soup using only what we had on hand," shares Margaret Glassic of Easton, Pennsylvania. "It's a family favorite, and it's good for us, too!"
You won't miss a step with this savory soup that has a touch of sweetness from molasses. Tender onions and a beefy broth make it especially noteworthy. You can serve it solo or topped with Quarter Note Croutons.
