I always ‘thought’ I might like French Onion Soup, but I never made an effort to order, or looked into making it to give it a good try. So my sister this past weekend was talking about how she made it and it made me crave it…go figure craving something I never even tried!
So on my weekly grocery trip to the store, I decided to pick up the items I needed. Let me start by saying some things you can get away with different brands but other things you just ‘have’ to buy a certain brand. Like Cheese for example…Land O Lakes White American Cheese just doesn’t compare to other cheeses.
So these are the ingredients I used that I recommend cause I would definitely make this again:
- 1 Can of Campbell’s French Onion Soup
- Sargento’s Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- New York Texas Toast Brand Seasoned Croutons
First, I heated up my french onion soup in the microwave as instructed for 3 minutes.
Then I poured the cooked soup into an oven safe glass ramekin type mug.
I put about 11 or so croutons on top…
…then a handful of mozzarella cheese to cover the top completely.
I stuck the mug into the broiler on low then high thinking that it would melt the cheese in a way that would brown it on top quickly so that the croutons remained somewhat crispy inside.
This didn’t happen, I ended up pulling out the mug as soon as the cheese melted because I had visions of an exploding mug in my oven! Does oven safe mean broiler safe? XD
So once I took it out, I gave it a try and hands down, I would make it again! As I ran out of croutons to eat, I added some more to my soup to finish the soup and the cheese that were left.
Wonderful quick lunch! Highly recommend!
