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 eras. It's also incredibly easy to make assuming you have a bit of patience.

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. Today we don't use champagne anymore but instead a rich beef broth. You can always buy the premade stuff but if you have extra vegetable scraps and a few beef bones lying around you can always make the broth at home the night before.

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