French Onion Soup
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Cook: 30 min.
I found these reviews very rude and insensitive. Every recipe can be tweaked but certainly in a much kinder way. This busy mother is finding time to spend quality time with her 7yr old daughter and should be commended. Many mothers let their children run loose getting into trouble learning to hang with wrong crowds. I salute this mother for putting her family first and starting by teaching basics in the kitchen continuing making suggestions every time they make French Onion Soup. She could have made PB&J instead?? Please let’s be kinder to each other and instead of critiquing, make your personal suggestions from one mother to another. After these comments, I truly pray this mother continued having fun in the kitchen with each other. Thanks for listening to my own thoughts.
Yuck...too much salt, not enough onions! This is the first Taste of Home recipe that I have given a "thumbs down" to. Every other recipeI have tried in over 10 years of swearing by the greatness of your recipes, has been awesome. Sincerely disappointed with this one, for sure!!
This might be a fast lunch but it certainly isn't traditional French onion soup. You might as well just open a can.
Not impressed. Way too much salt. Ten minutes cooking the onions doesn’t do them justice. Just not a good recipe. Use real beef broth ( no salt if you can find it) not bullion. Sauté the onions in very low heat for at least an hour or until brown and sweet. And use twice as many onions then this calls for. It’s onion soup for goodness sake. They will shrink by a lot after an hour.
I understand that many Taste of Home readers are looking for quick,. However this recipe has several big flaws. 1) 2 qts low sodium beef broth, NOT boulion cubes and water. If that is what you like just buy canned onion soup.. , top each bowl with a baguette and some swiss, or gruyer, or provaline cheese. ,
Really delicious and so simple to make.
I subbed beef stock (32oz) for bullion and used sweet onions!! Delish!!!
So good! Great for soothing the thought!
Not great. Way too much bouillon making it way too salty! Also, onions are not truly "French Onion soup" caramelized. There are a bunch of easy, better recipes out there. There is even a recipe for caramelizing onions in a crock pot for easy recipes, just stir every 30 to 45 minutes, no babysitting the onions.
I changed it for arthritis therapy reasons - used Better Than Bouillon Chicken Base, 4 garlic cloves, added a broccoli, cauliflower, carrot mixture, omitted the French Bread & cheese. It suits me, it's good.
