“My wife and I wanted French Onion Soup that was simple and tasty. This recipe was made with regular yellow onions and our home made bread, BUT the real taste is caramelizing the onions and garlic. This will make the onions very sweet with no additional sugar. Please enjoy this soup that made our taste bud tingle.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the onions in half, then then slice into thin ribbons. Do the same with the garlic cloves.
  2. Using medium heat with a covered fry pan, add the olive oil, the onions and the garlic slices, salt and pepper and saute until caramelized, DO NOT BURN! This will take between 30 to 45 minutes to achieve the caramel color and sweetness. Add the beef broth and vinegar and bring to a boil and simmer @ 10 minutes.
  3. Slice the bread into @1/2 inch thick slices and toast to medium-dark, cut into 1/2 inch croutons. Fill oven proof bowls, or large coffee cups 3/4 full, add the croutons and 1 slice of provolone cheese. Broil until the cheese bubbles and melts. I use the next to top rack in the oven so that nothing burns.
