Okay, here's a copycat recipe for Applebee's
tasty French Onion Soup. Hope you like it!
White onions - 6 (sliced)
Beef stock - 8 cups
Water - 1 cup
Hamburger buns - 5
Parmesan cheese - 10 teaspoons
Provolone cheese - 10 slices
Salt - 2 to 3 teaspoons
Black pepper - 1/4 teaspoon
Oil - 3 tablespoons
Garlic powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Heat oil in large pot to medium
heat. Saute the onions for 8 to 10 minutes until
Add in beef stock, water, garlic
powder, salt, and black pepper. Bring to a boil.
When boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes.
Separate the hamburger buns top
and bottom. Cut the crown off the top half, so top
and bottom are same size. Then bake at 325F for
about 20 minutes. These are your croutons.
When the soup is done, spoon 1 cup
into an oven-safe bowl, and place a crouton on top.
Lay a slice of provolone cheese on top, and sprinkle
1/2 teaspoon of parmesan cheese over the provolone.
Turn the heat of oven to broil and
cook the soup for 5 minutes or so until cheese is
melted, and turning golden. Spread another 1/2 teaspoon
parmesan on top and serve.
