I love a good French onion soup on a cold day. I took a class at La Cuisine Paris many years ago which taught us how to make French onion soup. They have been kind enough to let me share this recipe on the blog. I make it every winter. I did learn from the class that this is the cheapest thing to make at a French restaurant. It is mostly onions, broth, butter, bread, and cheese. This typically runs about 10-15 euros a bowl in Paris. I have rarely seen it at around 10 euros. Now that you can make it at home with this recipe, will you order it out on your next trip?
What I love about this recipe is the stock is chicken and not beef stock which makes it lighter. I don’t eat a ton of red meat and prefer this recipe. You can switch to beef stock if you wish.
I originally posted the recipe here but decided to update it with a few notes after making it recently.
What you will need for this recipe:
I grew very impatient making it the first couple of times not letting the onions caramelize. This takes patience and is key to the soup. Don’t rush the process. The above photo is from my original post.
About 30 minutes later.
Broil the French onion soup on a baking tray to make removing the bowl from the oven easier.
It pairs very nicely with a glass of red or white wine too.
I’D LOVE TO SEE IT!
