Watch Us Make: Rich French Onion Soup

See how easy it is to make rich, bubbly, French onion soup right in your own kitchen.

A crock of steamy French onion soup with a bubbling cheesy top is pretty much the perfect cure for the wintertime blues. And thanks to this Rich French Onion Soup recipe from Linda Adolph of Edmonton, Alberta, it’s so easy to make this restaurant-favorite right in your own kitchen. “When entertaining guests, I bring out this savory soup while we’re waiting for the main course,” she says. “In winter, big bowls of it make a warming supper with a salad and biscuits.” Oh yeah, we’re definitely on board with that.

This comforting soup is so easy to make. Caramelize the onions in the morning and let them simmer in a slow cooker with beefy broth, bay leaves and Worcestershire sauce throughout day. Pretty soon your kitchen will be filled with that irresistibly rich and cozy aroma. We won’t judge if you want to dig in right away-but trust us-you’re going to want to take the time to make that cheesy topping. Layer on a slice of toast and heavy portion of broiled mozzarella to get a restaurant-quality effect. It’s comfort in a bowl, and so are the rest of our 30 favorite soups to make in winter. Try ’em out and you’ll feel toasty all the way to spring.
