Single Serving French Onion Soup Bake

Anyone else a fan of French onion soup??

I have the real stuff about once a year… on my birthday! With competitions & macro tracking all that cheesy, bready goodness isn’t easy to macro in.

Enter this single serving version, made with ground turkey for a complete, high protein meal!

And yes… there’s REAL bread on top!

French onion soup doesnโ€™t typically have meat in it, but if youโ€™re counting macros, adding ground turkey is great way to make this a full meal! โฃ โฃ French onion soup is something I typically have once a year nowโ€ฆ on my birthday, when I insist on going to a bougie French restaurant ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธbut when I lived in France it was my favorite thing to order! โฃ โฃ ๐Ÿ”ธ๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜€ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ต : 307 cals (37.1P/7.1F/28.6C)โฃ โฃ ๐Ÿ”ธ๐—œ๐—ป๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐˜€:โฃ โ€”50g diced sweet onionโฃ โ€”4oz 99/1 turkey (112g) โฃ โ€”1/2 cup (120mL) canned French onion soup โฃ โ€”1 slice of nature valley 40 calorie bread โฃ โ€”20g reduced fat mozzarella cheese โฃ โ€”thyme โฃ โ€”salt & pepperโฃ โฃ ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿณ๐—œ๐—ป๐˜€๐˜๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€:โฃ 1. Preheat oven to 350 degreesโฃ 2. Sautรฉ your onion in a small pot until translucent. I sprayed the pan & the 2nd time I made this added a bit of water to the pan. I find it helps keep the onions from burning & helps them to caramelize if youโ€™re patient & want to let them cook a long time. (Not necessary to caramelize them though!) โฃ 3. Add your raw ground turkey & some thyme (~1/2 tsp) & salt. Cook through.โฃ 4. While the turkey is cooking, toast the breadโฃ 5. Add the French onion soup to the pan & mix together.โฃ 6. Transfer the soup mixture to a small baking dish/personal size glass bowl. โฃ 7. Cut the toast, then top the bowl with the toast, pressing the toast down a bit to let it soak up some liquid.โฃ 8. Top with cheese!โฃ 9. Bake for ~10 minutes until the cheese has melted completely!โฃ

**I don’t know why I called it “nature valley” bread. Maybe I was thinking of the granola bars, but the bread is called “Nature’s Own 40 calorie Honey Wheat Bread” and you can find it at most groceries (at least when we’re not in a pandemic…)

Best bread EVER if you’re tracking macros!

I use this bread in my french toast recipe & Monte Cristo crunch wrap recipe too!

The original recipe is from @haleynicolefit & can be found here. It’s a casserole version if you need to serve a whole family!
