Cool fun fact: I’ve always had a recipe for French Onion Soup, but it suuUuUuuUuuck3d. Here’s hoping no one ever made it, but if you did (why??), my dude, I apologize. So, I’ve decided to update my outdated recipe with a brand new one. Look how it sparkles with my cute mini Le Creuset cocettes! HAVE YOU EVER SEEN ANYTHING SO CUTE? Yeah, don’t answer that, of course, you have. I probably should’ve posted a more summer-friendly recipe because who wants to eat piping hot soup right now? Well, you know what? I live in New England & this damn region doesn’t obey the laws of seasons. Seasons are light suggestions. Calendar says it’s summer? EL OH EL, try again. New England says it’s still autumn so it’s cold & raining, but tomorrow it’ll be hot, humid, & thundering. Drunk seasons are fun! Yay! (Help me).
French Onion Soup, Upgraded & Updated
I originally made this recipe using beer & I used a crockpot, but my recipe calls for white wine. Whoops, forgot to mention my disclaimer here: this is not an authentic recipe for French Onion Soup by any means. This was also the first & most likely last time I will ever use a crockpot. What should’ve only taken 2.5 hours to make really took an entire day! HOW DOES ANYONE COOK LIKE THIS?! I hate crockpots. Invest in a Dutch oven & eat your food before the next meal period arrives.
Anyway, I added enoki mushrooms because it’s my obsession & my blood composition is 50% plasma, 30% hot sauce, & 20% fungi. In addition, I used ghee instead of regular butter because it’s just better. If Martha Stewart can chill with Snoop Dogg, my French Onion Soup recipe can chill with some ‘shrooms & ghee. Ja feel? Ja Rule.
What classic dishes have you modified/upgraded that’d make Julia Child roll in her grave? Was it worth it? Do you think I should start writing like a normal human being? Are my outbursts hysterical or cries for help? You decide 2018.
