“Was craving French Onion Soup, I combined 2 recipes and this is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter and combined with oil and onions. Cook for 1 1/2 hours stir occasionally. (You can cut down the cook time, but the longer you cook the onions, the softer and sweeter they get).
  2. Stir in pepper, paprika and bay leaf, cook 10 minutes.
  3. Add 5 cups beef broth and optional white wine, bring to a boil.
  4. Add remaining 1 cup beef broth to Wondra flour, dissolve flour in broth and add to soup. (This will thicken broth, if you want a thinner broth, either omit flour or cut the flour back).
  5. Add Kitchen Bouquet.
  6. Reduce heat and simmer slowly for 2 hours.
  7. Pour into ovenproof crocks or bowls. Top with slice of bread and sprinkle with cheese. Broil till cheese melts.
  8. NOTE: You can cut back on the times for step #1 and #6 to get it on the table faster.
