Cheese-topped onion soup
This week's French Fridays with Dorie called on me to make something that I would never have made on my own - onion soup. Yes, it's called cheese-topped onion soup, but the cheese is actually on a slice of bread that sits on top of the onion soup.
First you caramelise some onions:
then you had some chicken stock and spices and boil it all up to make soup:
then you grate some Gruyere, slap it on a slice of toast, grill it to melt the cheese, then float it on top of your soup.
Surprisingly tasty! I lied it. If you hate onions, this recipe is a bust, but I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
