French Onion Soup

Serves 4-6
by Tenina Holder

What could be better than a big bowl of fragrant soup with cheese on toast? Not much...French Onion Soup is iconic 60s fare, but this is not your Mother's French Onion Soup. Delicious in the extreme...just allow to cool before wolfing down. Perhaps make more cheese on toast to scoop up those last little remnants that undoubtedly will linger at the bottom of the bowl. Almost makes me long for a cold wintery day. Almost.
