I didn't have beef consomme in the house, but then remembered that I still had the sauce left over from the French Dip recipe I had made the night before. It was a great sauce so I figured it would help to make a great soup. I'm happy to say that my family said it was the best onion soup they'd ever had.

Just delish! The bread and cheese on top was way good!

This soup was delicious! I added some garlic to mine and used mozzeralla cheese instead.

IT was very good. After taste testing it, I added some worcestshire sauce and it was even better.

Delicious. My husband isn't much of a broth person, adds crackers and bread to anything to thicken it into gloop and he loved this. Made it twice now, added some fresh ground pepper and garlic powder the second time and it turned out amazing.

Definitely need to cook the onions at least a full half hour to get them tender. Also I didn't have consumme so I just used extra broth and it turned out great.

My entire family loves this soup! I also used mozzarella cheese instead of Gruyere. I will definately be making this again soon!!
