You’ve heard me talk about how much I love getting fresh produce from our members. It’s just one of the many ways I showcase Texas agriculture. And I love when members send me recipes to go with it.

Several months ago, Jessica Domel introduced you to Bruce “Onion Man” Frasier, president of Dixondale Farms. While Jessica interviewed the Onion Man, she was also able to get some of his favorite recipes. This is one she shared, and it’s perfect for the cold weather that’s coming.

For Must-Have Hearty French Onion Soup, you will need…Must-Have Hearty French Onion Soup
2 tbsp. butter
3 large onions, peeled, sliced, separated into rings
2 cans condensed beef broth
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 cup seasoned croutons
1 cup shredded mozzarella or Swiss cheese

Soup, to me, is one of those feel good meals and a go-to for a cold winter day. Warming and comforting from the inside out. Almost like your meal is giving you a big bear hug.

First, saute the onions in butter over medium heat until golden brown.

Bring everything to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for about five minutes. While everything is simmering, turn on your oven broiler. Once the soup is cooked through, ladle it into oven-safe bowls.

This soup is perfect for a cold winter night and has an amazing flavor. It’s really good when paired with a nice salad or even a grilled cheese sandwich. Stay warm. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
