Homemade French Onion Soup

Some may think that savory soup needs to be saved for cold winter days…not in our house! We enjoy the delicious flavors of soup year round and hope you do too! Another one of our favorites that you have to try is my Homemade Chicken Dumpling Soup!

For as long as I can remember, seeing French onion soup on any menu has put a smile on my face. There is just something about that savory flavor, the perfectly mushy yet kind of crunchy croutons, and that cheese…oh yes…the cheese! Now, I have to admit that I have been disappointed from time to time, but for the most part, I leave with a challenge.

My goal is to imitate that amazing creation right in my own kitchen. At times I have come close, but there is always something missing. The flavor is off, the onions are done quite right…but this time I have nailed it! There is no need for me to head to our local cafe just for soup when I have created the perfect Instant Pot French Onion Soup, and I can spoil myself with it any time I want!

Check out my simple recipe below and prepare to be amazed!
