French Onion Soup is a classic and comforting dish that transforms humble ingredients into a rich and flavorful bowl of warmth. Thinly sliced onions are caramelized to a golden brown, imparting a deep sweetness to the broth. The soup is often enriched with a flavorful beef or vegetable broth, and a splash of dry white wine adds complexity. Topped with a toasted baguette slice and a generous layer of melted Gruyère or Swiss cheese, the soup is then broiled to create a golden, bubbling crust. The result is a soul-soothing experience that combines the savory depth of caramelized onions with the gooey decadence of melted cheese, making French Onion Soup a timeless and beloved classic in French cuisine.
