If your an onion lover like me, than this is a must try recipe for you. French Onion and Lamb Skillet Casserole adapted this title for a reason. A common quality amongst skillet recipes is the fact that a lot of them are one pan meals, which is such a GREAT quality. I mean is there anything better? All ingredients thrown together to maximize flavor combination, and little clean up in the end. Yah I don’t think it gets better then that.
This recipe is inspired from french onion soup, but it’s just not quite the same. The addition of ground up lamb and orzo is a must, but it changes up the consistency while also adding new flavors you won’t find in a french onion soup. The cheese and amount of onions however is worth name dropping french onion.
So here’s how it goes. Start by, of course, caramelizing those onions to perfection. You gotta baby them thought so stir them frequently. Set those onions aside, and brown your lamb in the same pan. Once the lamb is cooked, you’ll slowly start to stir in remaining ingredients in order (refer to recipe card below) and top it all off with gruyere cheese and the bread crumb mixture.
That’s pretty much it for this French Onion and Lamb Skillet Casserole. With 5 minutes of prep and 30 minutes of cook time, not only is it easy and delicious it can be on your dinner table in 35 minutes. Such a perfect recipe as life can just get crazy sometimes. And you never know when that will be, so keep this recipe in your weekly meal rotation for the day when life hits you like a ton of bricks. Because haven’t we all experienced that?
On a more positive note, it’s Friday! And we hope life treats you kindly as we approach the weekend. Have a great one everyone, we’ll be back next week with more yumminess!
