Hungarian Witches Soup

Jaded spoon


We use to call this Witches soup… least that is what it translates to. It was a quick soup that was made to warm us up and also got rid of some older bread too. It’s almost a version of French onion soup. You can add or change things but even as a base soup it tastes great.
