La soupe delicieuse

What can you make that is fast, easy, delicious, and will satisfy your appetite for things French?

French Onion Soup, of course!

French Onion Soup
1 packet onion soup mix
1 loaf French bread, sliced
Swiss cheese, sliced, enough to cover the slices of French bread you plan to eat (or, if you can find it, use French Gruyère cheese)
  1. Prepare onion soup as directed on package.
  2. Slice French bread into thick slices that will fit into the bowls you are planning to eat from.
  3. Put bread slices on a baking sheet and place in the oven at about 350°F for about 10 minutes, or until hot.
  4. Place bread into bowls. Lay cheese slices on top.
  5. Pour HOT soup over bread and cheese. The cheese will melt (in theory).
  6. Serve soup by itself for a light but filling meal, or enjoy as an appetizer with your favorite French entrée.
