Everyone should eat well. Children should be exposed to a wide variety of foods and we should cook more and avoid overprocessed meals. Sitting down to a meal together is something that is sadly on the wane. We do it as often a possible.
I don't know what to say about this dish. Ok I do, it was way too salty to start with! I feared it would be when I saw that there was a Lipton onion soup mix and stock reduced a bit to make the sauce. Now I adore French onion soup, so I was super excited to try it and I do like salty so I tried to not dislike it, and while I didn't love it, I liked it way better than the boys did. I am deeming it fixable, but as is. it's a 2.5-3. To begin with I would either use water instead of stock or add a lot more cream to tame the salt monster. I used Swiss cheese instead of mozzarella as Swiss is what goes on French onion soup. I also didn't measure the cheese, i just put a liberal amount of cheese over the top. I think it's a cool idea that needs a tweak. (Apologies to its creator!) I would love to try this again because I think it could be outstanding. I hate to say anything uncomplimentary, and it was still pretty yummy despite my soaring blood pressure, but I feel honor bound to point out to anyone reading my blog things I would change.
