What to add to canned French onion soup?

You can make French onion soup at home but I’m sure that all the peeling, chopping or simmering steps to have a homemade delicious soup take much more time than simply open the can. 

Canned French onion soup tastes amazing and so convenient to use in many recipes. However, the most classic combination might be French onion soup with croutons and cheese. The method for this dish is so easy but will enhance the flavor and also elevate a canned good to a restaurant-quality dish.


  • A can French onion soup (about 10.5 oz)
  • A cup of seasoned croutons
  • 1 to 2 slices of Swiss cheese


  • A stovetop/ a microwave
  • A saucepan/ a microwave-safe bowl


  1. Pour the soup into a saucepan or a microwave-safe bowl (if you use the microwave to cook)
  2. Add the croutons to the soup and top with the Swiss cheese
  3. Heat the pan over medium-low heat until the soup is warmed through and the cheese is melted (if you use the microwave, place the bowl in the microwave and set high for about 20 to 30 seconds)
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and garnish the soup with some chopped parsley


  • If the store-bought French onion soup is too thicker than you wish, add a little water, broth or milk to thin the consistency
  • Serve warm or hot for peak quality
