Recipe by Ms.Norrell

The perfect onion soup...simple and delicious. I got this recipe from a professional.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 900 g onions, chopped a way you prefer (I halve them and slice them)
  • 100 g butter (you may use oil, but this will change the taste)
  • 1 14 liters broth
  • 150 ml white wine (you can serve the rest for dinner)
  • nutmeg, to taste
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste


  1. Heat the butter and steam the onions in it until they become translucent.
  2. Add broth and wine.
  3. season with salt, pepper and nutmeg (while this gives a delicious flavour, don't overdo it) and let everything simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Add more spices if necessary.
  5. You can serve it with white bread, cheese croutons or try the classic way and gratinate with toast sprinkled with a generously amount of cheese.
