Creole Onion Soup

Recipe by  

"Gourmet taste in 30 minutes -- you can't beat that with a stick. Light a candle (to avoid tears while cutting onion). Ok, let me be honest....I seldom measure anything...but I will try...just sprinkle the ingredients and taste as you cook....make it your own."

  1. Slice the bread in thick slices and place on the rack in the oven. Heat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Check bread periodically throughout following steps and remove from oven when golden.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Cook onion in butter, stirring, until golden, 15 minutes. Sprinkle flour, pepper, garlic powder and Creole seasoning over onion and continue to cook until flour is golden brown as well. Stir in spaghetti sauce and soy sauce, cook 1 minute more. Stir in beef broth and simmer 10 minutes, or until onions reach desired consistency.
  3. Place slices of bread in ovenproof bowls and top with Swiss cheese. Ladle soup into bowls and top with Parmesan. Place in oven until Parmesan melts. Serve at once.

Different than your average onion soup but great. I didn't like the smell or appearance (it looks like gravy) and was worried I'd picked a bad recipe but I was pleasantly surprised. I really liked this. I didn't have spaghetti sauce so I just used tomato sauce and it worked fine. I will make again. Thanks!

This was pretty good...I love onion soup and was very excited to try this twist. It wasn't quite as good as I thought it would be, but I will make it again.

This is quite good. If you want French onion soup, make actual French onion soup, not this stuff. But I highly recommend it, it's really tasty. Be sure to cook the onions as long as the recipe says.

We love onion soup, and this was a great variation. We'll definitely make this again.

This is very good. I used worcestershire instead of soy to cut back on sodium and I also added some red wine to the recipe. I have been making onion suop for years and really enjoyed the addition of the tomato sauce. Thank you!
