French Onion Soup Recipe

Katie Heuer


Made this for the 1st time tonight. Turned out very well. Whole family loved it. Some put a slice of bread on the bottom and on top and that was just to much bread. Soaked up all the broth. Will be making this again and again.

Stove Top


1 lb
sliced sweet onions
1 Tbsp
olive oil
1 Tbsp
1 box
32 ounce beef brooth
1 Tbsp
a-1 steak sauce
1/4 tsp
ground white pepper
1/2 tsp
old bay seasonings
4 slice
toasted bread - french works well
4 oz
shredded cheese mozzarella or other soft cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

Slice onions about 1/4" thick. Separate into individual rings. In large fry pan add oil and butter over medium heat, add onions. Fry onions till caramelized and tender.
Pour beef broth, A-1 and seasonings into large dutch oven or slow cooker. Add cooked onions. Bring to a boil then turn to low and simmer. At least 1 hour. I had mine in the slow cooker for 4 hours.
Meanwhile while soup is simmering take your 4 slices of bread and put on a cookie sheet in 350 degree oven and toast/dry out til dry all the way through. I made fresh french bread in my bread-maker and sliced it 1" thick and toasted in the over for approximately 15 minutes(7 minutes a side)
Turn on your oven broiler to high. Fill 4 ovenproof soup bowls with onion soup, top with a slice of toasted bread and 1 oz shredded cheese or a slice of your favorite cheese. Put under broiler till cheese melts. Serve immediately.
