French Onion Soup ~ I love ordering French Onion Soup when I go out to eat ~ to me, it's the ultimate indulgence soup. There is just something about the carmelized onions, deeply flavored broth & melted, gooey cheese that just sends me. I thought that since I like it so much, I really should learn how to make it at home. I decided to go to the queen of French cooking, Julia Child, for inspiration. Her version takes a bit of time, comes out a bit murky, but it tastes superb. I'm all about the taste & it really delivers.
Eating it with 'really big cheesy croutons' (OK, garlic rubbed cheese toast) is easier when everybody likes to dip the bread instead of chase a crouton around the bowl, trying to cut it with their spoon. Works for us. :) Try the adapted recipe over at Smitten Kitchen, it's really good & is SO worth the effort!
