French Onion Soup Casserole

French Onion Soup has always been one of my favorite dishes…who doesn’t love the idea of toasted bread and gooey cheese, melted all over a hot and flavorful onion soup? But the traditional French Onion Soup recipe is not low calorie or Weight Watchers friendly.

It was so easy to make and the finished product was delicious! All the flavors I love but for less Points. And making it into a casserole was really easy. It just basically the soup with more onions and less broth. If you want to make this dish as a soup, just use more of the broth when making it. So simple, yet so perfect. And each very large serving is just 5 Points + each. This low calorie French Onion Soup Casserole Recipe is perfect for warming up on a cold day. Enjoy!
