So have you been on Facebook lately? And seen all the countdowns to Christmas? I seriously can’t even handle it. And not just because the thought of Christmas freaks me out (which it does) or because I haven’t even started thinking about gifts (which I haven’t)….but because I feel like fall JUST started!
We literally went from weather in the 60’s and 70’s to weather in the 40’s, and I’m still getting used to it. And trying to enjoy it before the temperatures drop into the 30’s and stay there.
It’s Fall! (NOT Christmas….yet….) And we have so much FALL to accomplish. First on my list? Jump into all the soup recipes I can get my hands on. Starting with this delicious French Onion Noodle Soup! Do you LOVE French Onion Soup as much as I do?? I literally craved it all throughout my last pregnancy, and I would never dream of turning down a bowl of it.
Well, this version has all those crave-worthy flavors plus the most deliciously thick, chewy, just-like-homemade noodles. Which instantly takes it to the next level in terms of favorite fall soups.
Have you tried Reames Frozen Egg Noodles? They’re our absolute favorite noodles to use in soups! They’re thick, hearty, and perfectly chewy, and they hold up so much better in soup recipes than dried noodles. And I love that they’re made with just 3 simple ingredients – eggs, flour, and water – just like homemade, but SO much easier.
And they add the perfect texture to this French Onion Noodle Soup, making it a comforting, satisfying meal that will take you all the way through fall and the long winter ahead.
This French Onion Noodle Soup is the BEST soup to warm up to on a cold day!
Whether you make it for your family or serve it to guests, this soup is sure to be a hit. The first time I made it, I have to admit I was a little nervous about whether my kids would eat it. But? They loved it! They gobbled it up! And they asked for seconds. It helped that they recognized the flavor from my French Onion Risotto and my Slow Cooker French Onion Chicken. But even without that, I swear there’s something about the noodles that pulls them in…..and once you try it for yourself you’ll know exactly what I mean.
Tips for making French Onion Soup:
- Go low and slow. The BEST (only) way to caramelize onions is to cook them slowly over medium-low heat and stir them regularly to avoid burning. It takes a good 30-40 minutes to bring out the best flavor, so be patient!
- Find a balance between savory & sweet. A good French Onion Soup has both sweet and savory notes, and the right balance might be different for different people. Don’t be afraid to experiment a bit with the sweet & savory measurements until you find the right fit for you!
- Let it simmer. The flavors in French Onion Soup develop as it simmers, so don’t skip that final step. And in the case of this French Onion Noodle Soup, the simmering is an essential part of cooking the noodles, so definitely don’t skip it!
