HG's Freakishly Good French Onion Soup
HG's Freakishly Good French Onion Soup

OOH-LA-LA
Love the piping hot pairing of cooked onions, soup-drenched bread and melted, gooey cheese?  Good news! You can make a guilt-free, diet-friendly version of classic french onion soup at home with HG's hot ROCKIN' recipe.  Take a peek...and give it a whirl.  Remember, onions are a girl's best friend (ok, maybe not, but they're delicious).

Ingredients:
1 can Progresso French Onion Soup
1/2 slice Wonder Light Bread, toasted (or other 40 calorie per slice bread)
1 slice Sargento Deli-Sliced Reduced Fat Provolone Cheese

Directions:
Cook soup according to directions.  Pour soup into an oven safe bowl.  Place toasted bread on top of soup, then cover with cheese.  Place bowl on cookie sheet and put into heated broiler, or simply place it in toaster oven until cheese gets bubbly. Makes 1 awesome-tastic serving.

FRENCH MISS
515 calories for a bowl of soup?  That's just plain ridiculous, no matter how you look at it.  Unfortunately, that soggy, fatty, gloppy, goo that floats on top of that innocent bowl of heated broth and onions sends French onion soup soaring into the Fight It! category. In fact, order a bowl of this sinful soup at most restaurants, and you'll be taking in as many calories as you'd find in a Big Mac!  Bottom line?  Skip this bowl of greasy cheese-topped soup and make your own slimmed down version at home.
