In continuation with my love for little pretty dishes, here was another I used my cast iron crocks for.
French onion soup and yet again the almighty grilled salad. Did your mouth water? This was SUPER quick, SUPER easy, and SUPER delicious.
My husband put this soup in his top 10 recipes and little does he know, I barely slaved over it…for that matter, I didn’t even put much thought into it!
Since the quarantine restrictions have been lifted, I am going back to work Monday. I am assuming I will be busy, things will be chaotic, and I will be stressed out.
Therefore, I wanted to make my life easy and ensure we had meals ready to go when I got home from work so we can just heat and eat…
Or I could call my husband crying in the car to preheat the oven 🙂 let’s hope it’s not the latter!
While preparing multiple dishes at one time, I had ingredients and things ALL over my kitchen. When I started cleaning all my bits and pieces up, I realized I had a few random items I could use to make a quick and easy soup. Why not add one more dish to the 6 others I made?
I had a half to 3/4 carton of beef broth that I had used to make slow cooker shredded beef. I never really use beef broth except for beef of some sort in the slow cooker but didn’t want to waste it. I also had one sweet onion and one red onion left over so THOUGHT BUBBLE…onion soup.
It’s cozy, rich in flavor, cheesy, and makes me happy. Qualities my husband has as well.
I have never made it before and had no idea the basis but I know it’s got onions!
