French Onion Soup Recipe


French Onion Soup with its hardy constitution, tangy onion flavor and wonderfully thick cheese was served throughout history, some say as far back as the ancient Roman and Greek era.

Although rumor has it that King Louis the XV of France has also been credited with its creation, a quaint story of him returning from a hunting trip, famished, with nothing in the pantry but onions, champagne and a crust of bread.

Enjoy this classic French onion soup recipe that will be sure to embrace your senses and feed your hunger.
