Baked French Onion Soup

Okay, here it is. I use the store brand French Onion Soup mix. Here is what I do to dress it up:

The One About Food

Preheat oven 450 degrees

  1. I slice thinly three onions.
  2. Then I take 1-2 tbs. butter and melt that in a soup pot.
  3. I sauté the onions until they are translucent.
  4. Then I add 4 cups of water and cook covered for 15 minutes.
  5. I add the store brand, (I use Best Brand French Onion Soup) mix, cover and cook another 12 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, I shred about 2 and 1/2 cups Gruyere Cheese and toast a circle of French bread for each bowl.
  7. I spray the french onion soup bowls with Pam for easy cleanup and then when all is ready ladle soup into bowl within a half inch of the top.
  8. Place toast into the bowl, (you may have to trim it to fit), and quickly cover with cheese.
  9. Place in hot oven and cook until golden on top.
    OMG, this is so good!!!
    Serves 4.
