An authentic and warming recipe for French onion soup, complete with slices of baguette and topped with cheese.
Do as the French do and remove the inner core of the onions before slicing. The French believe this makes the onion easier to digest.
Neither me nor my husband are specially fond of European cooking, not to mention soups, which are the last on our favourites menu list. However this soup is exception, really delicious, quite thick ( I put a little bit less water than recommended), I added grilled toasts with cheddar, sprinkled with some parmesam cheese. I also used beef stock instead chicken one-all family winner, will be repeated soon. - 31 Jan 2016
lovely easy recipe and tastes fab - 28 Dec 2015
This is a FABULOUS French onion soup recipe and the only one I'll ever need! I followed the recipe to the letter, except I cooked the onions a lot longer so they were darker and caramelised (note, I also doubled the recipe, so there was simply more to cook!). I also cut my onions in half and sliced them; I didn't chop them like they do in the video (though the recipe itself says 'sliced', not 'chopped'). In the end it is almost unbelievable how much flavour there is from a soup that's little more than fat, onions and chicken stock. Lovely and will be enjoyed again and again! - 23 Nov 2015
