My husband and I really like French onion soup but I wanted to do something different with it this is what I came up with. We both really enjoyed this recipe as a sub and the leftovers with noodles as I have add at the end of the recipe. I hope everyone that tries this enjoys as much as we do.
Combine ground beef, Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper. Form into meatballs. Cook meatballs until done. ( I bake mine at 375 degrees in the oven)
In crockpot combine au jus mix, water and beef broth, whisk together, add French onion soup, add meatball into the crockpot. Heat on high an hour or until heated through. Serve on sub rolls with cheese and caramelized onions. I toast my rolls in a skillet with butter. Use any condiments you would like on the sub, we like mayonnaise or horseradish.
For leftover meatballs: strain soup from meatballs into a pan add another can of French onion soup, 1 package brown gravy and 1/2 cup beef broth, add meatballs heat through. Cook wide noodles, drain and add meatball mixture to noodles. I serve it with salad and garlic bread.
