this was really good. I'm always on the lookout for Meatless Monday recipes that don't require a ton of prep. As far as adding meat to this dish, WHY? It is not supposed to be some take off on a soup or sandwich with meat; it is a takeoff of French Onion Soup. Also, please don't put up a review of the recipe if you haven't made it yet. when you add a review before making the dish you are simply reviewing the ingredients and that is NOT a review.
French Onion Melt
Hearty artisan breads are best for lumpy or moist fillings, like in our yummy French Onion Melt.
