All the delicious flavors of French Onion Soup in-between layers of flakey puff pastry with a flavorful punch of from Jarlsberg Swiss cheese! My French Onion Soup Spirals are the perfect appetizer for your next get together or make a batch to enjoy as a snack or light meal!
Admittedly I love french onion soup so much but it’s so much effort for a simple bowl of soup, so I’m always looking for ways to bring it’s flavor to different parts our weekly menu.
These French onion soup puffs are the perfect appetizer, snack or light meal. Filled with soft, caramelized onions and Jarlsberg® cheese, they are a guaranteed crowd pleaser!
The sweetness of the onions with the Jarlsberg® encased in a puff pastry spiral is the stuff dreams are made of. Perfect balance in every bite. It is the perfect canapé to serve with drinks and can be fully prepped ahead so great for festive parties.
Why is Jarlsberg the Best Cheese for French Onion Soup?
A better questions is why not Jarlsberg®? One of my favorite cheeses, it’s a creamy cousin to traditional swiss and a perfect balance to enhance french onion soup.
Jarlsberg® is famous around the world for its distinctive sweet and nutty taste and its large, round holes. It is available with or without its distinctive rind, either cut to suit your need, as a mighty 10 kg wheel or even individually packaged portions, that are one of my favorite portable snacks!
It’s such a wonderfully versatile cheese – whether you buy it as a regular staple for sandwiches, a complement for summer salads, a tasty addition to your cheese board or as an irresistible cheeky late night snack! Jarlsberg® is naturally lactose-free and suitable for vegetarians.
