Making truly authentic French Onion Soup is easier than you think! This wonderful, simple and flavorful soup is the perfect warm dish for winter!
If you’ve been following my posts the last few weeks you may have read about my recent European vacation that has inspired me to share so many of my favorites foods from Italy (check out this Penne Arrabbiata) and Paris. I have been wanting to share the perfect French Onion Soup recipe with you guys for a long time, and today is finally the day! French Onion Soup is irresistible, especially on a nice cold day, with a Croque Monsieur sandwich and fresh green salad on the side!
This French Onion Soup recipe comes from a family friend of ours named Peggy. She is not only a phenomenal cook, she also lived in France and has the perfect French Onion Soup recipe that she has graciously allowed me to share with you all!
This soup is really very simple. The keys to perfecting it are caramelizing the onions, which takes a little time and patience, and using high quality ingredients! A good, fresh block of gruyere and parmesan cheese, and a nice baguette are essential! It’s the perfect soup for a cool night, or even for serving at brunch or a dinner party. The soup base could be made in advance and stored in the fridge. Then, when you’re ready to serve, gently reheat it on the stove, and then add the breads, cheeses and toast it.
