Like traditional French onion soup but ready in a fraction of the time, this soup is loaded with rich broth and onions, ladled into bowls, topped with thick slices of French bread and Swiss cheese, then broiled until cheese is bubbling.

Made sure to use "beef broth" not those cubes and simmered broth with thyme a few minutes and let set to meld flavors. A good strong cheese gave this soup a nice flavor family was happy with. Not having to chop the onions was a real time saver. Maybe add some garlic next time I love my garlic and Birds Eye has a onion and garlic blend I might use next time. Read More

This was quick but needed a bit more than what is written to kick it up. We're vegan so I used vegan "beef" broth and added some Braggs Liquid Aminos and soy sauce plus some garlic. I also used vegan swiss on top of my whole wheat baguette slice. Nice for a quick lunch but add your own spin. Read More

I'm gonna have to agree with Patty Cakes on this one...no flavor! I ended up adding garlic salt and pepper and thickened it w/ a slurry of wine and Wondra flour. I do like the concept and ease of this and the idea of not having to chop a ton of onions is a major time saver but as written it is definitely lacking. Read More

Was not a big fan I made it as written except I used a roux to make it thicker. The flavor was missing. Sorry Read More

This was just ok the way written. I added some sherry and garlic to give it a bit more flavor. I liked the ease of the already chopped onions but I did feel like it was lacking in taste. With some tweaks this would be very good. Read More
