I first tried French Onion Fondue at a restaurant we recently checked out, and holy moly, I could’ve had that as my entire meal! Deliciousness! We looove French Onion Soup, so I have no idea why I didn’t think of this myself! Thus began my mini-life-mission to be able to make it at home whenever we wanted!
Aaaand… Mission accomplished! #wootwoot!
Mmmm… Crusty slices of French bread dipped in hot, melty cheese and caramelized onions… you will LOOOVE this French Onion Fondue!
It’s so simple to make… just cook the onions, then cook everything else together! Quick and easy… and sooooo yummmeh!!!
