UPDATE: The product is now called Cuisine Adventures, though there still seems to be a tie to Les Plats du Chef).
This delicious soup is unbelievably hearty. Though it only has 200 calories per serving (1 frozen sealed bag), you may want to split it. I usually serve it with French or Italian bread, and it makes a filling meal. It is close to what you’d receive in a restaurant. Don’t even think about salting it–it’s one of the saltiest things I’ve ever eaten (810 mg of sodium).
The best way is to cook it in an oven for at least 40 minutes (400 degrees). I usually cook it 48 minutes and then broil it for the last two minutes because I like the cheese bubbly, golden, and baked on the sides of the ramekin. Be careful–when it comes out of the oven, it is hotter than Hades.
The soup was once available only in fall/winter at Costco, but, according to the website, it’s now available year round.
Five out of five stars.
NOTE: Did you buy the French Onion soup at Costco? And then go home, remove all six soups from the box so they’d fit better in the freezer, and throw away the box? And now you’re online, looking for the cooking instructions? You’ll find them here:
