French Onion Soup


Hello Friends

How are you all doing? I hope you’re all settling back into routine after the holidays! It’s been hard rolling out of bed in our home… after the last few weeks of lazy days and sleeping in!

Today I’d love to share my new favourite soup with you! My husband made French Onion Soup about a month ago and I won’t tell you just how many times we’ve enjoyed it since! You will have to give this recipe a try!

 When I was looking for a recipe for French Onion Soup I found that some recipes for this soup were sooo long and detailed. Which is totally okay. But I’m a more simple cook and this easy recipe certainly doesn’t sacrifice taste! The broth is delicious and the onions perfectly sautéed. The bread and melted cheese on top are the icing on the cake! It’s the perfect soup to make for a cold wintery day…. or for any other day!

      Sydney, you will have to try it! You are an amazing cook and I know you would rock this French Onion Soup! Thanks for coming by and let me know how your mom liked it 😉 xo

    This recipe looks delicious!I might substitute a clove of garlic finely minced for the garlic powder. A clove of garlic has the added benefit of ant-infection (anti-colds &flu) quality.
