Made It! French Onion Soup
When people ask me what is my specialty dish, I usually say this French Onion Soup recipe. Like Lisa mentioned, our family has been making it for years. But the family tradition is not the only reason why it's my specialty - it's the fantastic flavors. The broth is so rich and earthy; the bread is gooey and crispy at the same time; the cheese is the perfect addition to the top. The best part about this recipe is that it doesn't take years to perfect. It's so simple and easy you're guaranteed to have a wonderful soup the first time you make it. The only tip I have for this recipe is to make sure that when you are placing the toasted bread on top of the broth you overlap the toasts so that some of the bread soaks up the broth, while other pieces remain crispy. I hope you give this recipe a try and fall in love with it as much as our family has done.
