With fall coming up, I cannot help but think about all of the casseroles, crock pot dishes and soups I will be making and consuming. Jake had a little obsession with making soups a few years back and bought a nice big pot, soup bowls and special spoons. This upcoming fall, I think I will have him be in charge of the soup making. 🙂
I however have a confession to make. There have been a couple of days this summer when Jake and I could not wait until fall and had to have our taste of soup before the cool weather hits. When we are not in the mood to make cook, our go-to soup is Trader Joe’s French Onion soup. Not only are they super easy to make, they are second on my list of best tasting french onion soups. (Panera Bread comes in first.) After finding these gems last summer, they are always on our grocery list and stocked in our freezer.
The soup is packaged with two servings to a box, air tight sealed in frozen cubes. It comes complete with the croutons and cheese.
After baking these soups several times in a medium sized casserole baking dish, Jake and I invested in these baking crocks. They are absolutely perfect for this soup!
The nice thing about these crocks is that the soup melts perfectly inside and becomes covered by the melted cheese. Soooooo good. After 40 minutes in the oven, it is time to dig in!
What foods are you getting excited to eat and make this fall?
