Fabulous! Even without the alcohol and recommended seasonings. I used a special variety of North Carolina sweet onions that our local roadside farm stand sells for only a few weeks in the spring. I used Herbs de Provence, Costco salt free seasoning, sea salt and fresh ground pepper. I used organic beef Better than Bouillon (great stuff) and needed to make it a bit stronger than the directions on the jar to make that soup taste rich enough. Made the toast with French Gaelic cheese (mild Swiss flavor). Really appreciated the detailed instructions on how to caramelize the onions. Thanks! Great recipe!
Loved it, followed recipe to a T, I love caramelized onions and the one with brie is looking like another to try.
It turned out great! I substituted it with red wine. Added 3 different kinds of onion.( Red, white, and Spanish.) Along with the garlic, thyme and Bay leaf, I also added worshire sause. Add a little more Brandy. When I was done toasting the baget. I added 3 different cheese’s. The family loved it and will make it again.
I’m so glad you liked the onion soup Kelly!
Deep flavor! What really made it was the vermouth, the Brandy, and the thyme. Do you not omit it. It’s so delicious. I was just going to wing it making French onion soup, and then I saw this recipe! it’s wonderful.
It turned out wonderfully. Everyone loved it
was great. :) i added some rosemary and it gave it a nice sweet earthy taste. and some mushrooms
Exactly what I had hoped to make! Delicious recipe! Thanks.
Awesome recipe! Restaurant quality! This one is a keeper!!
Easy to follow the recipe and the outcome is simply magical. We loved it and it was gone immediately. Next time I’ll make more that’s for sure.
Delicious and hearty. I only added 1/4 cup of full bodied red wine to the vermouth you stated in recipe.
The BEST and easiest French Onion Soup!!! My family loves it! I serve with a copy cat Panera Fuji Apple Salad. I actually leave all the alcohol out ( just didn’t have any in the house when I first made it. So delicious!!! Thanks for the recipe!
fantastic….caramelised onions properly this time.
Soup was delicious ,I added some portbella mushrooms to it and I thought it was great. Thank you
Excellent! Made as recipe suggested! Yummy!
I’m so glad you liked it Mary!
Yum yum didn’t make enough ! Lol thanks
This recipe is spot on! Delicious and simple to make. I followed the recipe to the letter and ended up with absolutely delicious French Onion soup. Thank you
The taste was perfect. I followed the recipe to the max. I will make it again thank you
This smelled so good and I was so excited to try it but it was very sweet and kind of watery. I used sweet onions so in hindsight I shouldn’t have used the sugar or at least reduced it. I also used an unsalted “bold” stock that I often use. Do you think I can add some better than bullion now and summer for another 30 to try to bump up the flavor?
I will add I thought the instructions were wonderful!
Hi, Lindsay! French Onion Soup does tend to be a fairly sweet soup when all is said and told, but yes, you could certainly add some bouillon and simmer a little longer. Adding some more wine or a splash of white wine vinegar can also help cut the sweetness. Enjoy!
Love this it’s not often seen on menu’s now but I really love this especially in the winter months
This recipe was wonderful! The only problem is that it was so good that my husband and I ate too much! I used whiskey to deglaze (that’s what we had in the house) and it was delicious. Thanks very much!
