View Full Version : French Onion Soup?
10-06-2011, 05:05 AM
I have a recipe for French Onion Soup that I found on a food blog. It is made in a crock pot. The recipe yields more soup than the 2 of us can eat in a few sittings. Can I freeze French Onion Soup?? I guess, why not, right? Just mostly broth & onions? Seriously, I don't know the answer?? Thanks!

My rule of thumb is generally that if I can buy a frozen version then it is fine to freeze my homemade version. So I'll vote yes, you can freeze it.

Yes, it freezes fine.
(This is without cheese or croutons.)

I'd love a good french onion soup recipe made in the crock; can you please post?

Yes, I freeze French Onion soup (without bread/cheese) all the time with excellent results.

I started making it this morning. I will tell you it is taking much longer to carmelize and brown the onions, even slightly:rolleyes: SO do allow much more time for the first step, 60 minutes isn't long enough. The house smells heavenly already:D Here's the link to the recipe!

Thanks for the link and I'm glad to hear it smells great!
I love French onion soup but the last time I made it - UGH! The onions made me and the whole house absolutely STINK. The next morning, I went to do my laundry and my clothes smelled so gross. No idea what in the world happened there but, needless to say, I've been a bit onion soup shy for awhile. :rolleyes:
This thread is what I need to get back on the bandwagon...:)

Must be able to freeze it-- Aldi's has a frozen version with croutons and cheese I've been eating (slightly doctored) compulsively for several weeks-- my hubby-man does not like onion soup, so it's a me-only treat.
