If you love Onion Soup here is a simple and delicious way to fix it. I used my homemade beef broth that I had in the freezer but you can use canned beef broth or even chicken broth to make this. Serve with fresh bread sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and toasted in the oven.

  1. Yes with you all the way but I toast lightly good sliced bread. i then grill it with lots of cheese on top. When cool lay it in top of onion soup just as you say. When frying so gentle the onions add first a teaspoon of sugar to the onions then fry until golden transparent before adding flour. Now lay out the cheesy toasted grilled cheese bread with lots to makea lid almost.Back in oven and bake for as long as it takes to make a crust. Serve in the bowl to table and in that true French manner break the crust in one tiny corner with spoon and pour in good red wine one half glass. Then break in to bits for each to enjoy with soup. I had this in Paris back streets and it was a party with class with this onion soup and the ceremony of crust breaking went to the Mayors wife. Not just soup but pour passion for it. Loved onion soup and we grow fields of them here. Yes I make it like this each time when friends arrive in summer later days such as now;.
