Soupe a l’Oignon (French Onion Soup)

Bill:  Jill was inspired to make some French Onion Soup this weekend.  She noticed that we had 3 containers of chopped onions in the freezer.  It was a good day for soup since it was only 40 degrees with a wind chill in the low 30s.  She used this Soupe a l’Oignon recipe from The Best of Cooking Light Soups and Stews cookbook.  It took a while to caramelize 6 cups of onions.  You can tell from the picture below where she’s reading her book.  The soup was topped with baguettes and cheese broiled in the oven.  It was really good.

  1. I usually don´t like onions but this soup looks really good – and so does Jill´s book! What are you reading right now?

  2. Onion soup is something I’ve never tried making, and I’m not even sure if I’ve eaten it before. You’re definitely much more of an expert than me at caramelizing onions, so maybe you’ll have to make this for me when we visit! The pictures look really good! Where did you learn to multitask while cooking, Mom? 😉

  3. That does look good. I think I would like it a lot.
