French Onion Gnocchi

My husband and I have been craving French Onion Soup. It’s one of our go-to side orders at a restaurant. There’s just something about perfectly caramelized onions bathed in a salty, savory and thyme-y broth and then topped with an extra crispy crouton and gooey cheese than brings our hearts happiness. And in case you’re wondering, the answer is an obvious YES. I am that person scraping the outside of that super hot cauldron trying to get every last bit of the crispy brown cheese that overflowed whilst under the broiler. I mean, you can’t waste it!

Since we haven’t been out to eat in some time, I wanted to bring back that good ol’ feeling. French Onion soup is super easy to make, but if you don’t have a favorite recipe, you can follow this one from Gimmie Some Oven.

We had quite a bit left so I ended up making French Onion Gnocchi, which was equally soul soothing and very easy to make. All I did was add the gnocchi to the the onion soup, added some left over mashed potatoes for a more hearty meal, added some spices and viola!

Yummy – In – My – Tummy

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of Private Selection Gnocchi
  • 1/2 Cup Mashed Potatoes (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Thyme or 2 springs of fresh
  • 1/2 tsp. Dried Basil
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. Ground Cayenne Red Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Panko
  • 1/2 Cup Shredded Parmesan

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to broil (500 degrees)
  2. Bring soup to a low boil. I had around 4 cups of onion soup left and it fit perfectly in a ten inch skillet pan. If you have less soup, just add some water to get to that ratio.
  3. Mix in basil, thyme, nutmeg, cayenne and gnocchi. The gnocchi will need to cook for 3 minutes per packaging instructions.
  4. Mix in potatoes (optional)
  5. Mix the panko and parmesan cheese and sprinkle on top of gnocchi.
  6. Pop that pan in the broiler until nice and golden brown
  7. Enjoy!
