Country French Onion Soup

This soup is absolutely delicious! I love to make this soup every chance that I get.


2 Tablespoons Butter

4 Cups Sliced Onions

1 Teaspoon Finely Chopped Fresh Garlic

2 ½ Cups Water

¼ Cup Chopped Fresh Parsley

21 Ounces Beef Broth

2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard

1 Teaspoon Dried Basil

¼ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

¼ Teaspoon Dried Thyme Leaves


¼ Cup Butter

1 Teaspoon Dried Basil Leaves

½ Teaspoon Finely Chopped Fresh Garlic

3 Cups 1 Inch Cubed Bread


6 Ounces Sliced Provolone Cheese

Melt the 2 tablespoons butter in a 3 quart saucepan until the butter is sizzling. Add the onions and garlic. Cook over a medium heat. Stir occasionally and cook for 8 minutes. The onions should be tender. Preheat the oven to 450° F. Add all of the remaining soup ingredients and continue cooking for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt ¼ cup of the butter in a 13/9 inch baking pan in the oven for 6 minutes. Stir in 1 teaspoon of basil and ½ teaspoon of garlic. Add the bread cubes and toss to coat. Bake for 10 minutes while stirring occasionally. You want the bread cubes toasted. Pour the soup into oven proof bowls. Place 1 slice of cheese in each bowl. Bake for 10 minutes until the cheese is lightly browned. Serve with the croutons. Serves 4
