It may not be listed on the menu, but this is Applebee's most ladled soup each and every day. Just be sure you have some oven-safe soup bowls on hand before you jump into this clone, since you're going to pop the dish under the broiler to brown and melt the cheese on top. Under the gooey melted provolone of the original version you get from Applebee's is a unique round crouton that's made from bread that looks like a hamburger bun. So that's what we'll use for our clone. The round shape of the bread is perfect for topping the soup.

Absolutely the best French Onion soup EVER! If you can't find Swanson (like me) use Knorr Beef broth & cut the salt by about half. I also add 3 shakes Lea & Perrins (half recipe) or 1 tbsp full recipe. You can also substitute shredded Greyere for parmesan if you want. And I must agree with other reviewers, the Holland Rusk Rounds are perfect for this soup!

I have almost every book you have put out. When I need a recipe I just come here and it tells me which book to look in, Awesome! My 2 son's love this recipe. It's so easy to make and it taste so good. I add 5 shakes of Worcestershire sauce and I now use the Holland Biscuits. Comments are great to help out other Chef's!
