French Onion Soup

French Onion Soup

I made this soup a few week’s back and I knew I had to share the recipe with all of you.  At first I was a bit skeptical because the original recipe called for 4 onions, I only used 2 but I could not imagine using 4 and keeping the broth at what is in the recipe.  This recipe was adapted from the Better Homes and Gardens 1965 Cookbook.

After making it, I was both impressed with the taste, the simplicity, and the aroma.  It was delicious, we served it with the Sister Schubert’s Mini Baguettes, which were perfect for dipping.  I also made bacon and crumbled a little bit on top with shredded cheese and fresh parsley.  If you are Gluten Free serve these with Better Batter French Bread!

I even used one of the pots my grandma used when we were growing up, something about it made me feel like I was standing back in her kitchen as a kid.

My husband and I both enjoyed this soup and with how easy it was to make, will probably be eating it regularly in the future.

French Onion Soup

Yield: 4


  • 2 White Onions, Thinly Sliced
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 4 Cups Beef Broth
  • 1 Tsp Worcestershire Sauce (or Gluten Free Worcestershire Sauce)
  • Pinch of Fresh Parsley
  • Salt/Pepper to taste


In a large stock pot on medium heat melt the butter and add in the onions letting them simmer until slightly browned.

Next, add in the broth and Worcestershire sauce and then the parsley, mix this up and let it come to a rolling bowl.

This will simmer for about 10-20 minutes, then serve.


Enjoy this perfect soup for a cold, winter day!
