Recently I was on vacation with my family and we ordered French onion soup in a restaurant.
I don’t think my daughter had ever had it before but after we all literally were about to start licking our bowls clean, I knew I had to come home and make it.
I scoured the internet for French onion soup recipes and nothing seemed ‘just right’ for me and how I like to cook. Some recipes involved really lengthy cooking times in a slow cooker (12+ hours), others called for homemade beef stock although which I’m sure is lovely, I just can’t be bothered. And others seemed incredibly fussy and complicated.
Enter this easy, straightforward recipe that’s ready in one hour. Perfect for when you want French onion soup but don’t want to be tormented for an entire day by the smell of onions cooking and wafting through the house.
The broth has rich flavor, the onions are perfectly caramelized, and that cheese. Be still, my heart.
