Homemade French Onion Soup

There's something special about French onion soup. I love dipping my spoon into the melted cheese across the top and into the caramelized mixture only to discover a delicious slice of toasted bread beneath.

With so many flavors and textures, it's no wonder this soup recipe has it all in just one spoonful. We love serving French onion soup at our dinner parties. Try this easy to make recipe and we promise you'll love it, too!

  • 5 large onions, thinly sliced (Vidalia)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 10 ounce cans of beef broth
  • 1/2 cup dry sherry
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • A dash of pepper
  • 6 slices french bread or country bread toasted
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 8 thick slices of Gruyere

Cut your bread into 1 inch slices. Toast until golden brown and set aside.

Cook onions in butter until tender, but not brown. Add broth, sherry, Worcestershire sauce and pepper, and bring to a boil.

Pour into individual ovenproof bowls. Cover each with a piece of French bread, Parmesan and Gruyere. Place under broiler and heat until cheese bubbles.
