Ingredients

Soup

  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1 package (1 oz) onion soup mix (from 2-oz box)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 3/4 cups Progresso™ beef-flavored broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Croutons

  • 1 cup Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup finely shredded Swiss cheese (3 oz)
  • Italian (flat-leaf) parsley sprigs, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In 3-quart saucepan, cook beef, onion soup mix and pepper over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in remaining soup ingredients. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook uncovered 10 minutes.

    Meanwhile, heat oven to 425°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, Parmesan cheese and 1/4 cup water until soft dough forms. Place dough on work surface sprinkled with additional Bisquick mix; roll in Bisquick mix to coat. Shape into a ball; knead 10 times.

    On cookie sheet, press or roll dough into 12x6-inch rectangle, 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 8 squares, but do not separate. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown. Remove soup from heat; cover to keep warm.

    Remove croutons from oven; sprinkle with Swiss cheese. Set oven control to broil. Cut and separate croutons slightly. Broil with tops 4 to 6 inches from heat 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and slightly browned.

    Ladle soup into 4 bowls; float 2 croutons in each bowl. Garnish with parsley.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    A blue-veined cheese, such as blue, Gorgonzola or Stilton, would be delicious on the croutons. Use about 3/4 cup crumbled cheese instead of the Swiss cheese.
  • tip 2
    A fresh tossed salad with vinaigrette would taste great with this rich soup.
