Microwave French Onion Soup

By Rose Mary Mogan cookinginillinois


I first made this soup about 19 years ago, & was amazed at how simple & easy it was, as well as so full of flavor since it is made in the microwave. It really is good. Does not taste like it was made quick & easy.

I made this recipe for Sweetest Day, when my then Boyfriend & now husband were dating. I wanted to make an impressive dinner, & this was the first course. I must have done something right, because today we are husband & wife.

It has been a Family Favorite not just for it's flavor, but for how quickly it can come together in taste & presentation. Try it I am sure you'll agree.

In going through old photos of some of the dishes I have made over the years, I came across this one of the French Onion Soup I made as the first course, so I am sorry there are no step by step pictures. I will take some pictures the next time I make it.
