French Onion Soup

This may seem like a fancy name, but it is super easy to make and tastes so good. Your family will love it!

Plus it uses up a ton of red onions if you need that! ;)

  • butter or cooking oil
  • 2 lbs red onions, sliced
  • 1 TBLS balsamic vinegar
  • 1 TBLS Worcester sauce
  • 1/4 TSP dried tarragon or thyme
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 4 cups chicken, beef, or veg broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups grated gruyere cheese
  • french baguette slices


  1. Heat butter or oil in large pot on medium heat.
  2. Add onions and cover.
  3. Cook, stirring frequently to prevent burning, until deep golden in color, 15-30 minutes.
  4. To the onions, add vinegar, Worcester sauce, spices, wine, and broth.
  5. Bring to a boil and turn down to a simmer. Cook uncovered for 15 minutes.
  6. Preheat broiler. Ladle soup into oven safe bowls and top with a slice of bread and cheese. Melt cheese under broiler and serve.
