    Great soup. Will definitely make again

    This turned out well. I didn’t have beef bouillon so I used veggie which didn’t impact the flavor too much. I like that the recipe includes instructions to make Gruyère toast separately as I don’t have ramekins

    Great taste but not enough broth

    I have never made French onion, even though it’s my favorite!!! I followed directions , may have added a few more onions, more wine and butter but this is a phenomenal recipe and so amazing!!! HIUGE HIT!!! Thank you 💕

    Pretty dang tasty. Might add a bit more bouillon or use beef stock instead of beef broth next time.

    Poor. Did the instant pot version and the onions simply did not carmalize; there was too much liquid produced during pressure cooking (2-3 cups) and onions were pulp by the time it cooked off. Pressure cooking produced a flavorless broth.

    I added hickory smoked salt and boiled with the crust of the Parmesan. Turned out really good

    perfect! but add a little extra salt than you need and some parmesan with the gruyere :)

    Fantastic. Used mostly sweet onions. May use more yellow next time.

    It was delish! Added a couple more onions but kept everything else the same and it was stupendous! 🔥

    Very very good! We halved the recipe but kept the full amount of white wine. Finally a recipe that makes it worth it to cook homemade onion soup rather than buying the pretty good frozen one from Trader Joe’s.

    It was really good but a tad sweet for me Would deck make it again but maybe use a red wine instead of white

    The recipe is great but this gets a sh!t rating because the ingredients in the direction link are different. Screen your recipes better, Yummly. I already did my shopping based on the apps ingredient info - you’re usually really consistent & this was a bummer. Had to go back out to get everything - during a pandemic. Booooo.

    Loved it! Just make sure to cook onions low and slow until they are deep carmel color. Patience.

    I made this today for lunch and it turned out FANTASTIC. I really took my time with the onions i carmilized then for about an hour and a half. I did make a few modifications: red wine instead of white the flavor was so much closer in my opinion, i also added flour to the onions after the first 30 minutes, added a clove of garlic and a dash of Worcestershire sauce just before i added the beef broth i also added a cup of chicken stock. It turned out sooooo good. I’ll definitely have to make more next time!

    Pretty good. I only had boullion for the beef/chicken and it turned out great. Make sure to get a dry wine - mine was on the sweeter side. I did the instant pot version and it came out beautifully!
    Yummly User 2 years ago
    Turned out pretty good. It was a little on the sweet side. We will definitively make it again.

    i added pieces of bread because it only had onions which made it cooler. also it doesn’t look like the picture at all. also, as a beginning cook, i would’ve liked a bit more guidance on how to specifically caramelize the onions, but i eventually did figure it out.

    Pretty good, would make again but with red wine instead of white and maybe 2 more cups of beef broth. I prefer a darker French onion soup with more liquid
    Yummly User 3 years ago
    Pretty good. I also added 1/2 cup red wine, 1 teaspoon crushed garlic and 1 teaspoon onion powder. I will make it again.

    Fantastic very tasty

    Amazing, changed a few things but was the best I’ve had. Onions took even longer than expected but it was worth it. Thanks!

    Fantastic comfort food. warms you from inside out. All that chewy melty gruyere ... oh my, maybe i have some more onions around here somewhere ...

    I am not a person that uses salt but I felt it needed some so when I added it it was awesome!
