    Thanks Troutman!

    My sincere apologies to troymeister and Troutman fer gettin' yur names mixed up. I corrected it in the body, but I don't see how to correct the title...

    I made troymeister 's French onion soup today, and my wife said it was the best FOS she ever had.

    When I make something I've never made before, or at least not in many years, I look at a bunch of recipes to get an idea of how I want to do it. In this case, after my search, I decided to follow the recipe fairly closely. I did use red, yellow and Vidalia onions hoping for more depth.

    The onions before cooking.

    The soup done. I forgot to take a photo before putting it in the ramekins.

      Mr. Bones - the ramekins are the bowls... I'm thinkin' ya mean the mushrooms and I ran them through the blender for a fine chop. Used a little less than 4 oz because that's what I had, and it seemed to work well. We have had the ramekins for years, but I'm guessin' that Mr Wally would have something that would work - it just needs to be able to take the heat from sittin' under the broiler. And I just added them to the onions shortly before they were done as per the directions.

      Thanks RonB
      No, despite (or perhaps) my simple rural upbrangin, I grasp th relatively simple (fer a Hillbilly) concept of mushrooms, quite firmly...we'uns hunted Morels, an Beefsteaks, from time I could walk barefoot outta th door...

      Hail!!, later in life (1972) when we'uns moved where they was runnin water all piped right up into th house, indoor toilets, no wood stove This was like landin da *** on Mars, fer me

      Thanks - it was.

    That looks amazing! Never made it, but now I want to. Not sure what I would serve with it. Just the soup and a loaf of home made bread might make a nice meal.

      That's what we did. I toasted some French Bread to put in the soup and had a slice or two with butter also.

    That looks great. My youngest is getting close to punching me in a sensitive area due to how long it's been since I've made FOS.


      You did have me scratching my head lol . I was racking my brain trying to remember having cooking French onion soup much less written a recipe. But hey, credit where credit is due, I will be making troymeister 's recipe very soon myself !!!!


        Great recommendation! I can not wait to try this in the fall while grouse hunting up north. This one is going in the file.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
