This is an original recipe for French Onion Soup that my whole family just loves. The top is melty and cheesy, and the soup is very flavorful. Using soy sauce and celery leaves to flavor a soup is something I learned from my Grandma. This recipe makes four appetizer-sized servings. I hope you try it out!
Step 1: Gather Ingredients
2 tbsp butter
2 cups onions. (The onions I used were small, so I used about 3, but it would only take 2 large onions.)
1 cup celery
4 cups beef broth (2 cubes, or 4 tsp powder.)
1 Tbsp cooking sherry
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
3 Tbsp soy sauce
4 slices of bread
About 1/2 cup shredded cheese, or four slices of cheese. Gruyere is my favorite, but you can use whatever cheese you like.
You will also need:
A large pot
Cutting board, knife
4 Oven safe bowls--MUST be oven safe.
An oven with a broiler. If your oven doesn't have a broiler, that's okay, just preheat it to 350 or 400 or so.
