French Onion Soup Recipe made with Knorr Homestyle Stock

#NewKnorrStock, #CBias, Collective BiasI was asked to give Knorr‘s new Homestyle Stock a try from one of their recipes.  I decided to go with French Onion Soup because it’s one of my favorites and it’s a good fall meal. I’m really getting into making soups lately. I think it’s fun to see a mish mosh of items come together to make something warm and yummy! I actually got some of the Knorr Chicken Homestyle Stock from BlogHer11 but haven’t gotten a chance to make anything with it yet. I think I may give the Chicken Fajitas a try next week.

Discover a great tasting stock made with carefully selected ingredients, simmered to perfection — perfect for broth and soups; rice, mashed potatoes and pasta; and sauces and gravies. Find it in the broth aisle!

I love how easy the stock is to use and my soup definitely did not turn out super salty like some french onion soups, in fact, I think it could have used a little salt added in. It’s nice to know that the stock doesn’t come across as overly salty!

    That looks yummy! I haven’t tried Knorr stock before. I will have to pick some up the next time I make some soup. I love that you used Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter too in the recipe. Living on that stuff!

  2. You’ve totally inspired me to actually make french onion soup inside of buying that little packet of powdered mix.
