French Onion Soup

My husband is a HUGE fan of French Onion Soup, so one day I decided to be really sweet and prepare him a bowl 🙂  I personally can’t tell you if this is good or not but according to my husband it is the best he has ever had. Original Post

1/4 cup butter
3 medium white onions, sliced
3 14 oz cans beef broth
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
3 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
 6 – 8 slices French bread (baguette)
1 bag of Kraft Italiano cheese blend (About 3 – 4 cups)
  • Saute onion in melted butter in a large soup pot or saucepan for 30 – 40 minutes, or until onions begin to brown.
  • Add beef broth, salt, and garlic powder to onions. Bring mixture to boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 1 hour.
  • Add the first amount of Parmesan cheese in the last 10 minutes of cooking the soup.
  • When the soup is done, preheat oven to 350.
  • Cut French bread into cubes and spread out on cookie sheet.
  • Toast for about 10 minutes, just until they start to brown.
  • When bread is done, remove from oven and set oven to broil.
  • Assemble each bowl of soup by spooning about 1 cup of soup into an oven-safe bowl.
  • Sprinkle toasted French bread cubes evenly on top of soup.
  • Top with a generous 1/2 cup of the Italiano cheese blend.
  • Place the bowl on a baking sheet and broil for 5 – 6 minutes, until the cheese begins to brown.
  • Serve hot.
Just a quick note – if you don’t buy the Kraft Italiano cheese blend you will want to use:
6 slices Swiss cheese
6 slices mozzarella cheese
 6 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
When you get to the cheese part of the directions – layer a slice of Swiss, then mozza, then sprinkle with 1 Tbsp of the Parmesan.
