I won't kid you...this is not the time-consuming, tried and true method for preparing this French classic. However, it is great in a pinch, and will fool your guests into thinking you spent much longer in the kitchen than you did!
- In saucepan, cook onions in butter until onions are tender. Add broth, water and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to boil. Simmer, covered, 25 minutes.
- Spoon into 4 ovenproof bowls. Place piece of French bread in each bowl. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Top with cheese slice. Broil until cheese melts.
really nice, I made it to use as a base for a casserole, but then i liked it so much i ate it
Jackie, this may not be time consuming and complicated, but it is better than any other French onion soup I've ever made! I had to make some changes based on what I had, but nothing major. I used 4 cups of water and 5 beef bouillon cubes as the base, and I added about 1/4 cup of white wine. I think the butter is the key! It was fabulous!
This was really simple and tasty. I made it as directed except that I halved the recipe. Thanks Jackie for a great comfort soup. Made for 123 Tag.
