French Onion Soup
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Cook: 30 min.
I understand that many Taste of Home readers are looking for quick,. However this recipe has several big flaws. 1) 2 qts low sodium beef broth, NOT boulion cubes and water. If that is what you like just buy canned onion soup.. , top each bowl with a baguette and some swiss, or gruyer, or provaline cheese. ,
Really delicious and so simple to make.
I subbed beef stock (32oz) for bullion and used sweet onions!! Delish!!!
So good! Great for soothing the thought!
Not great. Way too much bouillon making it way too salty! Also, onions are not truly "French Onion soup" caramelized. There are a bunch of easy, better recipes out there. There is even a recipe for caramelizing onions in a crock pot for easy recipes, just stir every 30 to 45 minutes, no babysitting the onions.
I changed it for arthritis therapy reasons - used Better Than Bouillon Chicken Base, 4 garlic cloves, added a broccoli, cauliflower, carrot mixture, omitted the French Bread & cheese. It suits me, it's good.
This soup is easy and better than Panera's. Low calorie, I used crusty french baguettes instead of french bread.
Perfect for this cold weather
The soup is good but 1,387 mg of sodium (salt) is 1500 mg per day. I used low sodium beef broth which has 440 mg per 1 cup serving.
This is an easy and delicious recipe. I like to use a soup base rather than bouillon. Other than that followed recipe exactly and it turned out great. Will certainly be making this again especially for my granddaughter who loves french onion soup.
