Despite my sensitivity to lactose, I can’t pass up on a solid bowl of French onion soup. The marriage of caramelized onions, savory stock, and stringy, crispy cheese have joined together to warm my bones on more than one cold occasion.
For those who can’t get enough of French Onion Soup but lack the time needed to dote over a pot of onions for four hours, Trader Joe’s has released a variation that’s a bit easier to prep.
Their new French Onion Soup Bites with Caramelized Onions & Swiss Cheese is a mouthful in more ways than just its name. The new frozen appetizer is made with a doughy wrapper that’s stuffed with caramelized onions and Swiss cheese, and seasoned with a vegetable broth base.
You’re essentially biting into French Onion soup, just minus the mess, and I’m completely down with that. Anything to satiate those soup cravings.
Guests can find these bites in the frozen foods aisle at your local Trader Joe’s in 8.46-ounce boxes for $4.49.
