French Onion Soup

This was so easy to make and the taste is incredible.  Just like the French onion soup you get at restaurants…probably better!




  1. Warm the oil and butter in a pot for about 1 minute or until it begins to create a white foam.  Add onions and sauté until the onions are caramelized and have a nice golden brown color.  Add oregano and basil and cook for another 2 minutes.
  2. Add the red wine and deglaze the pan by scraping the bits off the bottom.  Add remaining stock and simmer for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Pour soup in an oven safe bowl or ramekin and place croutons on top of soup.  Add cheese on top of the croutons and place under a broiler to allow the cheese to melt.  Remove from broiler once the cheese begins to bubble and turns a golden brown.  Garnish with a little parsley or paprika and enjoy!
