Beefy French Onion Soup
1 lb. Black Canyon® Angus Ground Beef
2 cans (10-1/2 ounces each) condensed French onion soup
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
4 slices Swiss cheese
4 slices French bread, cut 1-inch thick
- Heat large saucepan or nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Remove from saucepan with slotted spoon; pour off drippings. Return beef to saucepan.
Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
- Add soup and amount of water according to soup can directions. Stir in thyme; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes to blend flavors, stirring occasionally.
- Cut cheese to fit bread slices; top bread with cheese. Place bread slices on rack in broiler pan so surface of bread is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 1 to 2 minutes or until bread is toasted and cheese is melted and golden brown.
- Evenly ladle soup into 4 bowls. Top each bowl with 1 bread slice
