Oh the weather outside is frightful! Seriously, can Spring make up its mind yet? One day the sun is out and shining a beautiful 80*. Then the next we have sub 40* temperatures with rain. The constant yo-yo has me craving some comfort food to warm the soul … and maybe my fingers.
With that said, here is a recipe for soup! Not just any soup, but the king of soups: French onion soup. You’ve probably ordered this dish once or twice while at a restaurant and just savored every last bite of this cheese-covered soup thinking to yourself “this is absolutely the best soup in the world.” Am I right? Of course I am because NOTHING beats a great crock of French Onion Soup on a cold, blistery day.
From the beefy broth, the flavorful caramelized onions, the broth-soaked bread to the cheese — the golden, bubbling layer of perfection to top of this amazing bowl of yumminess. While I think we can all admit how much we LOVE French Onion Soup, few and far between have actually made it at home. Even though it looks intricate (AKA a complex, tricky recipe), it’s actually quite EASY! PLUS, we made it even easier with our slow cooker version!
So what are you waiting for? Go make a pot. And enjoy this perfect soup all winter long… or you know, Spring, whichever tickles your fancy.
Place the slices of baguette on a baking pan and toast (I use the broil part of my oven for approximately 2 minutes on each side).
Portion the soup into oven-safe bowls and place on top a baking pan for ease. I then add a nice portion of Mozzarella & Swiss cheese into the mixture before placing my pieces of baguette. I top the baguette with generous amounts of Gruyere cheese. Place the bowls in the oven to bake at 350*F for approximate 20 to 30 minutes to melt the cheese.
If you are like me, you like the crispy melted cheese - to achieve this, broil the soup bowls for an additional 2 to 3 minutes after baking so the cheese is bubbly & browned.
Well, we are a few days into our Whole30 challenge and it’s definitely…
Cold-buster coming at ya! It’s that time of year again when everyone around…
