Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I prefer to make the soup with chicken broth instead of beef, and it's a great way to use up your leftover French bread. This recipe was from the Hamburger Hamlet Restaurant and was printed in the LA Times food section back in the 80's. To this day, it still reminds me of my travels to France and remains one of my favorite soup recipes.
