Soul-Warming French Onion Soup Recipe

Soul-Warming French Onion Soup Recipe

d make French onion soup. I looked online for recipes and found crazy ones, with things like Gruyere and half a bottle of wine (that was Tyler Florence’s). That wasn’t for me.

Thank goodness for All Recipes. I found a recipe called rich and simple French onion soup, and basically went with that. I made it a little simpler because that calls for optional sherry (which I opted out from) and thyme (which I skipped because I don’t have time on hand ever). The result was amazing, soul-warming French onion soup that hit the spot … so well that I really want to have this recipe every single day now.
