French Onion Soup Bombs

While there are many types of soup out there, we all know the classics.

Chicken noodle, of course. Tomato, clam chowder, and one of my personal favorites? French onion.

You could do these bread bombs with any type of soup, but I think there’s something about doing it with a soup that is normally served with melty cheese and crusty bread that just feels right. Think, three-bite sized cheesy bread bowl.

Now we’re talking!

You can save yourself some time and use premade dinner rolls. Heck you could save yourself even more time and use premade soup. Me? I prefer to cook it all as I go.

Also, I use vegetable stock for my French onion soup because I don’t eat meat, but if you prefer the traditional beef broth, have at it.

1 can flaky biscuit dough (8 biscuits)
2 tablespoons butter
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
2 sprigs of thyme
salt & pepper, to taste
¼ cup red wine
¼ cup flour
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups vegetable stock
1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded
8 slices mozzarella
chopped parsley, to garnish

DoveWare Casserole Dish
20-cup Digital Multicooker with Sauté-Then-Simmer STS®
8 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour

1. Preheat your oven to 350℉.
2. Separate the biscuit dough. Shape each biscuit into a small ball, being sure to roll it between your hands so it stays.
3. Bake biscuits according to package instructions in the DoverWare casserole dish, plus a few minutes until golden brown.
4. Remove from the oven and let cool while you make the soup, leaving the oven turned on.
**If you do not have an oven or wish to save time, use premade dinner rolls.
5. Set the cooker for Sauté-Then-Simmer STS®; close the lid and let it heat briefly.
6. Add the butter to the inner pot and allow it to melt.
7. When it is melted, add in the onion and thyme then season with salt and pepper.
8. Cook while stirring occasionally with a long-handled wooden or heat safe spoon until soft and caramelized, about 20 minutes.
9. Remove the thyme and add the wine.
10. Allow to come to a simmer and cook until most of the wine is gone, just a few minutes.
11. Add in the flour and garlic and cook while continuously stirring until the garlic is fragrant, 2-3 minutes.
12. Add the stock and stir until fully combined. Let it simmer for a few minutes until thickened.
13. Turn off the cooker and let sit.
14. Using a paring know, hollow out the middle of each roll, making a little cup for the soup bug being sure to not cut through the bottom.
15. Sprinkle some of the swiss into the holes of each of the rolls. Place in the casserole dish and bake in the 350℉ oven for 7 minutes until the cheese is melted.
16. Remove the rolls from the oven. Spoon some of the soup into each one and then cover the top of each with a slice of mozzarella.
17. Bake another 5-7 minutes until the cheese is fully melted.
18. Remove from the oven, let cool 5 minutes then garnish with parsley and serve.

  1. I just purchased your 6 cup rice cooker as my large one was stolen by my caregiver during my move to a subsidized apartment. The 6 cup was all that I could afford and I have learned I cannot make most of his the recipes I used to because it is so small and I need a steamer tray to hard boil eggs! Two or three people on Amazon said that the 6 cup stated a steamer rack and my rice cup is a little funny wide curved shape type of cup it’s not what is shown in the photos. Please I would like some help in being able to cook things other than rice even though I make rice several times a week. My caregiver is not here on the weekend and I have almost no use of my hands so it’s up to me to use something like the rice cooker to make food for myself.

    1. Hi Elizabeth! Is the rice cooker you have a digital model with a few different cooking function buttons, or analog with just the on/off switch? If you happen to know the model number, that would help me out greatly being able to give you some ideas and recipes to cook. If not, I can help you with that 🙂 To start, my suggestions would be to try some of the recipes listed for a 20-cup rice cooker and cut them in half. Soups are a great place to start! You can search “Soup” in the search bar of the blog.
