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!

WOW. Delicious. Attempted something else gluten free, had already sautéed the onions and did not want to waste them. Googled quick onion soup and it landed me here. I used gf spreadable beef bouillon, water, a small dash each of black pepper, oregano and Lowrey's garlic salt and the worchestershire sauce, bringing it to a quick boil. Meanwhile, in the toaster oven I placed a gf slice of bread (from the freezer), topped with a bit of mozzarella and jarlsberg to melt, and poured myself a bowl and added the bread/cheese "raft" - soooo delicious. This quick recipe rivals any slow cooked "proper" onion soup. Yum.

What kinda gal eats a bowl of soup on a hot, humid day? A day when I have so much to do, and no time to eat. Well, I turn right to this recipe authors' recipes, that's what I do! :) Not only is this fast, and oh so pretty! ...it's a joy to eat and to be enjoyed standing right at the sink peeling apples and slurping away. I didn't change one thing about this recipe except for the servings, making 2 instead of 4. The serving size was perfect. I used Vidalia onions which are in season and have a perfect sweetness that lends itself easily to this soup. I didn't have any french bread, used an English muffin sliced in half, topped off with swiss cheese and parmesan cheese. I will be using this often and such a delightful recipe this is!
