French Onion Soup
This is the best French Onion Soup my husband and I have ever eaten. Every spoonful was an absolute delight. The broth was amazing, and most important, at least to me, it was seasoned perfectly.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve ordered French Onion Soup in a restaurant and couldn’t finish it because the salty taste it left in my mouth did me in. This recipe allows you to enjoy the broth, onions cheese and croutons in every delicious spoonful.
The ingredients that make up French Onion Soup are plentiful anytime of the year and inexpensive making it a very affordable soup to serve your family. The ingredients are so easy to come by that in Roman times French Onion Soup was considered food for poor people. If this is what poor people ate honey count me in because this soup is fit for a king!
Our soup was topped with homemade croutons and grated Swiss Cheese. A small Italian baguette made simple and delicious croutons. Cut the baguette into slices, butter both sides and broil both sides. Place them on top of the soup (use an oven proof bowl), smother them in grated Swiss Cheese and broil til the cheese melts. HEAVEN in a bowl!! French Onion Soup, you won’t find a better recipe than this, ENJOY!
