How to Make Onion Soup

This onion soup is one of the simpler French recipes to make and combines a salty-sweet flavor.

Directions
For dumplings:
1. 
In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center of the mixture. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the egg, milk and oil. Add to the flour mixture; mix well. Cover; set aside.
For soup:
1. 
In a 4-quart Dutch oven, gradually stir chicken broth into white sauce mix until mixture is smooth. Stir in potatoes, onion, ham, evaporated milk and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. 
Drop rounded teaspoons of dough into the soup (don't worry if dumplings touch). Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes more or until potatoes are tender and a toothpick inserted near the center of a dumpling comes out clean. Sprinkle with parsley. Makes 10 side-dish servings (10 cups).
