TGIF friends! I wanted to pop on here to share with you that I made Joanna Gaines French Onion Soup yesterday and it was amazing! So, if you love french onion soup, come check it out!
So, this is a first. I’m not actually going to share the recipe with you because clearly you can google it and find it for yourself. I’m just going to share my thoughts and recommendations along with a few pictures!
A few details…
*Most of the ingredients are things that you probably have on hand, or are not very expensive to purchase. The most expensive thing in this recipe is the cheese for the topping, which is Gruyere cheese. It’s about $9 for 8 ounces
*It takes about an hour to make, start to finish.
*This recipe makes 8 servings but I made it for 4 as a lunch, rather than as an appetizer.
*The recipe calls for ¼ cup sherry or white wine vinegar. I used champagne vinegar as a substitute and it was fine!
*The recipe calls for 4 thyme sprigs and I would recommend pulling the thyme leaves off of the stems and then add to the soup.
* I used a baguette instead of crostini and it was delicious. You can also use croutons for added texture and flavor.
So, here are a few pictures! I served the french onion soup in individual soup bowls I had on hand. I served it with buttered and toasted baguette bread. (And for once I didn’t burn the bread.)
Aren’t these little soup bowls adorable? I picked them up years ago at a thrift store for a few dollars.
If you’d like the recipe just search “French Onion Soup” by Joanna Gaines. It’s so simple and easy.
If you haven’t already, be sure to pick up Joanna Gaines’s cookbook. This was her first one and it’s beautiful and every recipe I’ve tried has been delicious! Next time you host a dinner party, consider making this soup as a starter. Your guests will be impressed and feel extra special!
Hope y’all have a great weekend! Let’s chat again soon! Much love, Dell
