French Onion Soup is one of my absolute favorite soups! After my Instagram post some of my friends asked for my recipe so here it comes!

Peel and thinly slice a bunch of onions, yes I might shed a tear or two doing this task!

Add to a Dutch oven and as always with caramelized onions give them time! Lots of time! I can’t stress enough that making French Onion Soup requires time! I usually start mid-morning to have it ready for lunch. As the onions do not require constant watch I can still do a lot of other things while the onions get cooked and caramelized.

Be generous with the Gruyère cheese as this really is the dot over the I so to say for this dish! But not so generous that all you will end up is a big lump of melted cheese! I get that sometimes in restaurants and that is not a hit!

To this soup I enjoy the rest of the white wine! I often chose an unoaked Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer or Bourgogne Aligoté. If you prefer drinking red to the soup I would go with Beaujolais Nouveau. As always recipe can be found on top of page in English and Swedish!

Remember Life is too short to not eat and drink well!
Enjoy!
