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 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.
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 is the best onion soup I have made so far. Will make it again, and again for sure!! Yum!
The technique of baking the onions and finishing them on the stove is genius and gave me time to get other things done. Layering the flavors intensifies the deliciousness (deglazing the pan with vinegar and wine). The consistency of the soup was perfect. I used balsamic vinegar and red wine in place of the sherry and asiago and gruyere in place of the sharp cheddar and Monterey Jack I used more thyme and a bay leaf in the stock. We had Caesar salad with it and a glass of Italian red wine.
Complete and total awesomeness! The 2 hours plus of cooking is totally worth it because it cooks down to this thick and rich broth that is so restaurant worthy. I did miss the traditional cheese on top but what's stopping me? Not a thing. I love it...it's the best french onion I've made at home.
did not change a bit
This is the best french onion soup! The whole house smells warm and inviting long after the onions have come out of the oven. Simple and easy to follow video
