#GlutenFree French Onion and Sausage Soup

Gluten Free French Onion and Sausage Soup

I love a big pot of hearty soup for dinner and it feels like the Fall is upon us; except here in Los Angeles. So when we have days in the triple digits, I crank up the AC and then I make soup.  The other day I was craving some French Onion Soup. I wanted it to be a little more heartier so I thought to myself I have some fabulous Sage Breakfast Sausage  in the freezer and that might make it a little hardier.

French Onion and Sausage Soup Ingredients:
2 Large Onions
1 pound Sage Sausage make sure it's gluten free with no fillers
1 32 oz box of Beef Broth
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Pepper
1 teaspoon of Garlic Powder
½ stick of butter

Parmesan/ Mozzarella gluten free toast Ingredients:
3 Tablespoons softened butter
1 cup Parmesan cheese grated
1 cup Mozzarella cheese grated
Loaf of Gluten Free Bread

Take Onions and slice very thin.
Place Butter in large stock pot and melt then add onions and caramelize.
In a separate pan cook Sausage
After caramelized ad salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder
After Sausage is cooked drain on a paper towel
Next add Beef Broth and Sausage to soup cook for an additional 45 minutes.

Serve with Parmesan/ Mozzarella gluten free toast on top.
To make Parmesan/ Mozzarella  toast butter gluten free bread add Parmesan toast in broiler or Toaster oven and brown then add Mozzarella on top until melted. Cut off crust and Float in bowl or serve on the side.  Make sure to watch can burn easily!!!!

Enjoy and Bon Appetite

  1. Those with gluten allergies have celiac disease, meaning their bodies cannot properly digest gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, triticale and oats. It is a disease that damages the small intestine and disrupts the body's ability to absorb nutrients from food, according to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse. Planning a gluten-free menu for your restaurant or event is less scary than it initially sounds. Plenty of breakfast, lunch and dinner menu options are available that can be made with gluten-free bread or pasta.

    1. My blog Cooking Underwriter is a Gluten Free blog. So the people that are cooking from it would buy Gluten Free Oats and many of my recipes note that. Thanks again for brining that to our attention, the majority of us who have a loved one that has celiac do know what we can and can not eat with celiac; but thanks again for the gentle reminder.
