This warming, comforting soup is made of caramelised onions and beef stock topped with buttery French bread croûtes and melted Gruyère cheese. French onion soup dates back to the 18th century and is one of the most recognised (and appreciated!) soups in the world.
A lickety-split version of that ever-popular standby, shepherd's pie. Seasoned ground beef and onions are sauteed, layered in a casserole with potatoes, topped with condensed cream of mushroom soup, sprinkled with cheese and baked.
