Thank you for a tasty recipe! This was yummy. It's definitely not a traditional french onion, but it was a nice change of pace! I think my onions were a little big, because there were a lot in there, but the broth was soooo good! Easy to make too! It's a keeper!
This is a wonderfully flavored soup and the diced onions and onion baking shortcuts are definitely a plus over traditional French onion soup. Of the three soups I served tonight, this was the least popular.
This had a really good flavor to it. I didn't make it with the bread because I was already making grilled cheese for my son although I will have to try it the original way. I have never made french onion soup, I was glad for the easy instructions but it was a very time consuming recipe. Apparently this was the less time consuming version so I'm glad that I chose it.
