How To Make French Onion Soup at Home
The best kind of onion soup is the simplest kind.
If you tried French Onion Soup in a restaurant and didn’t like this “Taste of France” – it probably means that you tried it at a chain place where they use a frozen soup. I guess you wouldn’t order it if you don’t eat onions (I hated onions when I was a little kid but now I like it).
Try onion soup in a good restaurant or cook it at home. There are a lot of recipes for it, but here is one of my favorite methods of cooking French Onion Soup. It’s really easy and you don’t have to spend a lot of time or money to cook it.
- 3-4 onions
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 cups water
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 8 cups less-sodium beef broth
- 1 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 1 French baguette (or croutons)
- 8 ounces sliced Swiss (or Gruyere) cheese
Peel onions and slice 1/8 inch thick.
Saute onions in butter over low heat. Stir in sugar. Cook onions until golden brown.
Stir in flour until well blended with the onions.
Add water, wine, and beef broth; heat to boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Pour into ovenproof crocks or bowls. Top with the bread slices and a sprinkling of grated cheese.
Bake at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes, or just until cheese is melted.
