The Not-So-Classic 3 French Onion Soup Recipe

Love French Onion soup and the health benefits that go along with it. Very good for Cold and flu season.

Saucy Pans

It’s been a very busy few weeks here at SaucyPans land. We had a lot of foodie related things going and had no time to actually cook ourselves! This had to be rectified with a delicious, belly-warming meal now that it actually is cold and not the fake cold that came a few weeks ago and fooled us all.

Being in Nice last week, I was inspired to actually finally cook some more French things. I have a beautiful French cookbook (Ripailles) at home I got one Christmas and never actually tried any of the recipes, for shame! It’s probably the prettiest cookbook I own and it has some really gutsy sort of meals in it.

Wanting to go French but also not really wanting to spend money on rabbit and lots of other ingredients, I opted to make a French onion soup.

I’m trying to put a cookbook together of just slow cooker meals; they are the best as you can put the ingredients in and leave to cook while you go about doing other things.
