I had some leftover au jus in the freezer from a french dip sandwich recipe. I decided to make French Onion Soup, a small salad and some crusty bread.
I started by sautéing 3 sliced onions in a pot with some olive oil.
Then I added 2 cloves of minced garlic and dried thyme.
After the onions caramelized a bit, I added the thawed broth. I added more water to fill the pot and a cube of beef broth, then salt and pepper to taste.
I filled out bowls and added shredded mozzarella to the top because that’s what I had in the fridge.
For the salad, I picked up these tasty baby greens from Trader Joe’s. I love kale, and this mixture of baby kale, spinach, and swiss chard was irresistible.
I had some hard boiled eggs in the fridge, so I diced up a couple and topped the salads.
Then I drizzled some Olive Garden Italian Dressing on top. I think that’s what made it so good!
Put it all together with some ciabatta bread and it made a very easy Makeshift Meal. Yum!
