Homemade Onion Soup

This soup can be eaten as is or turned into French Onion soup if you are allowed the bread and cheese.



  1. Slice the onions and place in a large pot with 2 cups of water. Let cook about 8 to 10 minutes or until soft.
  2. Add beef stock, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Bing to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes.
  3. Bake 1/2 of a hamburger roll at 325 °F (160 °C) for about 20 minutes or until throughly toasted, this makes your "Crouton".
  4. Place 1 cup of soup into an oven proof bowl and place crouton on top and top with low or reduced fat provolone cheese.
  5. Broil at 270 °F (130 °C) until cheese is bubbly and brown.
  6. Note: the nutritional information for this recipe does not include the bread or cheese so if used make sure to add them.

Fantastic recipe! I added a little Worceshire and wow, even better!

I didn't like the taste. Added worceshire sauce and mushrooms, it tasted much better after.

Absolutely delicious! I made the French Onion Soup version (baked with cheese) and my husband loved it too.

This is the best onion soup I've ever made! It was the only time I've ever made it! And Will be making it again!

This is soooo good and easy. I toasted a piece of light bread. Cut it up and placed it in the bottom of the bowl, added my soup then topped it off with 1/8 cup of low moisture made with skim milk mozzarella shredded cheese.

This is a great soup and instead of the bread I used some lowfat pepper jack in the last few minutes of baking and it was awesome! It became a creamy slightly spicy meal.
