    Love your cooking on utube ,and your family makes it too. But Catherine is the 🌟

  • Could you use a packet of the French onion soup mixture instead of the can? I bought many of them with one grocery haul, knowing they are a great backup for cooking on a budget.

    This meal looks delicious and worthwhile for down the road.

    This is so good. I love French Onion soup. We didn’t have ground beef, but had I did have frozen meatballs, so I used those instead adding them when you add the liquid. Plates were licked clean. Great recipe!
