Today I am partnering with Sargento Cheese to share my favorite French onion soup recipe! I just loved how it turned out! I think the flavor is deep, robust and spot on! Sargento Sliced Swiss Cheese, paired with their Artisan Blends Shredded Swiss Cheese is the perfect addition and finishing touch to the soup, and the gooey cheese with the baguette croutons makes for such tasty soup!
Each year I love to put together a fun Fall Dinner for my family to help welcome in the season, and sometimes I like to add a few spooky touches as we gear up to celebrate Halloween. The kids think it is so fun to have a few twists on an otherwise normal dinner, and we love to sit down together and enjoy a nice meal as a family!
For our Fall Family dinner this year, I decided to prepare a French onion soup! There is not much that is as comforting as a bowl of French onion soup with that nice gooey warm cheese and crouton! It’s a favorite among the adults and kids! To add a little twist on and add a little spooky flair, I decided to surprise the kids with a few little ghoulish eyes to top their soup, and they just thought it was so fun! Just a few little adjustments, and they are so pleased! I love seeing how excited they get about the little things!
I set the table with a nod to the season, but used some not-so-traditional fall colors, to create a fun yet sophisticated setting with a few little spooks thrown in there! I also think this would make a lovely table for just about any season minus the pumpkins and spooks, but also it would be perfect for a Thanksgiving spread!
I love that we have kept this tradition alive over the years, and the kids think it is so fun to have an otherwise regular family dinner be a little more dressed up, and festive than normal! I love to sprinkle little goodies throughout the table, and serve some fresh apple cider! They made cheers all throughout the dinner! I just love something to celebrate, and most of all having fun traditions and making lasting memories to look back on in years to come!
