    Chef Kate's Note:

    This is an amazingly easy way to make classic French Onion Soup. The quality of your stock will determine the quality of the soup. This makes four lovely individual crocks of cheese topped soup, assuming your crocks will hold at least two cups.

      This recipe is spot on! It is a great base for French Onion Soup, leaving much room for adjustments, substitutions and general shenanigans. I followed the base recipe to the t using Shop Rite brand organic beef flavored stock. I added about 1/2cup Fino dry Sherry. 1/4 cup at beginning and 1/4 cup before putting it in the oven. I baked the whole batch together using Organic Valley PROVOLONE cheese and it came out AMAZING! I can't imagine this recipe with homemade stock and the right variety of cheese. <br/><br/>Pair with a Semi-dry Pinot Grigio or your favorite wine. <br/><br/>A meal in and of itself....Thanks Jacques and Kate!

      Made this for 2013 Zaar Cookbook tag game and what an easy and delicious dish! I used homemade chicken stock and I also added some fresh thyme to the onions while cooking. Definately a keeper. Thank you for posting.

      This is an excellent recipe! I find myself coming back to it again and again. It is definitely best with home-made stock.
