Chef Tip: Try this Italian version with pancetta and rosemary! Cook 4 ounces pancetta, diced, in a skillet over medium heat until almost crisp. Add 1/4 cup chopped onion and 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary leaves to the skillet and cook until onion is tender. Add the pancetta mixture to the soup mixture in Step 1. In Step 2, sprinkle the remaining French fried onions with 1 tablespoon grated Pecorino Romano cheese, then bake as directed in Step 3.
I love this recipe, but do not use canned green, usually frozen French style beans. Sometimes (quite often) I add cheese. My family love it. I make my own onion rings since French's onion rings are so expensive in Canada.
Add water chestnuts for a little crunch, Crumbled Bacon, Bacon grease too
We like to add water chestnuts for a little crunch.1 can for a small batch and 2 for a large batch . Some extra mushrooms,canned bits and pieces usually. Some fine crumbled bacon and a little bacon grease too I am going to try the Beau Monde spice like anther person who reviewed suggested
The first time I had this was in the early 1960s at my neighbor's house. Then I convinced my mom to make it, too. I do recall there was some shredded cheddar in it, so I'll continue using that. Also I use two cans of soup since they are a bit smaller nowadays. And increase the other ingreadients only slightly. I might also add some extra mushrooms, Baby Bellas, but saute them first & slice.
