French Onion Soup
French Onion Soup Potatoes Are The Ultimate Comfort Food Mashup
By Elaina Friedman
When it comes to French onion soup, the soup part is just a suggestion, as there are many potato recipes featuring the dish's caramelized onions and Gruyère cheese base.
French onion mashed potatoes are a flavorful and creamy delight. When you don't feel like mashing, baking Russet potatoes in foil is also a time-saving and easy hack.
Instead of the typical toppings, add caramelized onions under shredded Gruyère. Then, stick them under the broiler until the cheese reaches a golden-brown hue, then tuck in.
For a more involved version that evokes flavors of the classic dish, make a soup. For the soup base, add flour, wine, and beef broth to your caramelized onions.
When the mixture has thickened, spoon it into split baked potatoes, top with Gruyère, and broil. The soup base will soak into the potato, saving you from dry bites.
