I love French Onion Soup. I have a great recipe HERE. We've had it at least once every two weeks. It's cheap, filling and good.
I also love it with homemade croutons.
Start by taking a loaf of old bread. I use leftover French or Italian bread from spaghetti night.
Cut into cubes. Mine are pretty big.
Melt half a stick of butter into a skillet OR add enough olive oil to lightly cover your bread. Add 2 teaspoons of this amazing stuff!
Stir until coated. Put on to a cookie sheet. . .
And put it under the broiler for a few minutes, until toasted. I flip halfway through.
These are amazing hot but I like them cold, too. Add to your soup!
