We were very kindly given some beautiful home grown onions by our friends who have emigrated to warmer climes. What better recipe to make than the classic French onion soup?

This is an incredibly easy recipe to make. Just chop all the onions, cook until caramelised, add some stock and simmer.

Meanwhile my youngest made the french toast to go on top. Cheese is her favourite food so it wasn’t surprising that she gravitated towards this.

There are many, many versions of the recipe, I used this quick one from the BBC Good Food website.

Bon Appetite!

Steps

1
Done

Melt the butter with the oil in a large heavy-based pan. Add the onions and fry with the lid on for 10 mins until soft.

2
Done

Sprinkle in the sugar and cook for 20 mins more, stirring frequently, until caramelised. The onions should be really golden, full of flavour and soft when pinched between your fingers. Take care towards the end to ensure that they don’t burn.

3
Done

Add the garlic for the final few mins of the onions’ cooking time, then sprinkle in the flour and stir well.

4
Done

Increase the heat and keep stirring as you gradually add the wine, followed by the hot stock. Cover and simmer for 15-20 mins.

5
Done

To serve, turn on the grill, and toast the bread. Ladle the soup into heatproof bowls. Put a slice or two of toast on top of the bowls of soup, and pile on the cheese. Grill until melted. Alternatively, you can complete the toasts under the grill, then serve them on top.
