French Onion Soup with Gruyere Toasts
French Onion Soup is one of the enduring triumphs of the culinary art. Yet it is comprised of the most humble ingredients—copious amounts of onion, a simple broth and a topping of ordinary bread and cheese. However, in French country cooking, nothing is ordinary. If you own a set of individual soup crocks or ovenproof ramekins, use these to serve this amazing mixture, topped with freshly toasted bread and oven-melted cheese.
