My girlfriend LOVES French onion soup. After making this recipe for her, she refuses to eat it anywhere else. I had never made french onion soup before, but this was an amazing meal.

So Good.....Mmmmm

I had never made French Onion Soup before and found the recipe to be very easy. Our dinner party guests really enjoyed it. I will be making this recipe again.

I'm definitely a cooking rookie so I was a bit apprehensive making this but man! It's very easy & very delicious. I put in a few extra bouillon cubes to make it a bit stronger. Deeelicious!

Soups on!!!

I love this soup. I had to use mozzerella cheese, but I prefer that over swiss anyhow. I also used ceaser salad crutons instead of toast, and would highly recomend giving that a try.
