This French Onion Soup Recipe is the perfect homemade french onion soup. This easy french onion soup recipe tastes just like you are eating at a fancy restaurant.
Thinly slice all of the onions. Heat your soup pot on high on the stove. Once it is hot add the oil.
Once the oil starts to smoke add your onions. Cook the onions until they are wilted down and caramelized, about 20 minutes. Do not stir the onions for the first 4 minutes.
Deglaze the pot with the white wine. (this means just pour your wine in, for those who are not always masterminds in the kitchen 🙂 )
Next add the beef broth, bay leaf, italian seasoning, salt and pepper to the pot.
Cook on medium heat for 30 minutes. Butter one side of the bread slices and broil over low heat, allowing bread to brown and become crispy.
Ladle the soup into your bowl or ramekin.
Place crispy bread on top, and then sprinkle generously with grated cheese.
Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly.
