If you are a fan of french onion soup but have never made it, you will be delighted with this recipe. It is super easy to make and easy on the budget.
What you need:
2 whole onions, thinly sliced in rings.
1/4 cup of butter
2 Tablespoons of flour
2 (14.5 oz.) cans of beef broth
2 1/2 cups of water
French bread, toasted or crackers
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup of grated swiss cheese
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Slice onion into rings. Seperate rings into single rings. In a medium saucepan saute onions in butter until soft. About 20 minutes.
Add flour to onions, stirring, while gradually adding beef broth and water.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer for 20 minutes.
If you using french bread, slice and toast bread in oven, keeping watch, making sure they don’t burn.
Transfer soup into an oven safe bowl. Place a layer of toasted bread (I skipped this part so I could portion and freeze my soup). Then sprinkle cheese on top.
Bake for 10 minutes at 425 degrees.
Because I didn’t add the toasted bread, I added crackers to my bowl, then topped them with the soup. This allowed me to freeze the remaining soup without soggy bread.
