We are beginning soup week this week on RMK. I am a soup girl. Once fall hits, I love to eat soup. This year I decided to try and make at home, some versions of my favorite soups that I love to eat when eating out. Top of the list for me is french onion soup. I love to get it just about anywhere that has it. Believe it or not one of my favorite versions is served at Outback Steakhouse.
So this at home version all begins with a cup of those caramelized onions that I shared yesterday. Once you have made those beautiful caramelized onions, this recipe comes together in about 30 minutes. It not the same as Outback Steakhouse, but it is still tasty!
