Soupe A l’Oignon Gratinée
This is a fabulously authentic, easy and traditional recipe for French onion soup or as the French call it Soupe A l’Oignon Gratinée. Incredibly good gruyere or mozzarella cheese that melts perfectly on top of sliced French bread to finish this soup, is heavenly!
This recipe was given to me by a good friend who had received it from an old French lady who has been making it for her family for more than 70 years and they never tire of it – it’s so delicious!
Did you know that onions were – in ancient times – considered an aphrodisiac? In France in the old days it was customary for newlyweds to be served onion soup on the morning after their wedding night.
Can This Recipe Be Frozen?
Easy? If you want to freeze left over soup leave out the bread and cheese and it’ll last in the freezer for a couple of months.
