French Onion Soup (Soupe A L'Oignon)

French Onion Soup (Soupe A L'Oignon) created by lazyme

This is a traditional French onion soup recipe. It is not difficult to make....although you can use canned/prepared stock, it is best when made with "homemade" beef stock, as the canned/prepared stocks tend to be too salty.

ingredients

directions

  • Slice the onions very thinly.
  • Cook them in butter until clear (do not let them brown).
  • Add stock and simmer for 45 minutes.
  • Just before serving, add the brandy.
  • Toast the bread towards the end of the cooking time, place the grated Gruyère on the toasted bread and float on the top of the soup.
  • If the soup is served in ovenproof bowls, you can place the filled bowls under the broiler for a minute or so to brown the cheese.
