French Onion Soup

I never had french onion soup growing up. Something about onions just didn’t appeal to me as a child (can you blame me?). My husband finally made me try it at a restaurant and I fell in love. After trying a few different recipes over the next few years I finally found the perfect one. This particular recipes beats the restaurants and most other homemade versions I have tried. There is something about it, it’s very filling and incredibly satisfying.

French Onion Soup


  • 4 – 4 1/4 cups chopped onions
  • 4-5 cups water (depends on if you like more broth then onions)
  • 4-6 cubes of beef bouillon (depends on the kind you use). I just do it to taste. Different bouillon has different tastes.
  • Croutons or melba rounds (or french bread)
  • Mozzarella Cheese


I do my french onion soup in the crock pot, but in a stock pot would work as well. Just toss all the ingredients and put on low for a couple of hours until the onions are translucent.

Top with croutons, mozzarella cheese and broil until cheese is golden. Before I had ramekins I used to just put everything in a bowl and microwave it, but broiling is so much better!
