Sopa de cebolla gratinada, receta tradicional francesa

French Onion Soup is one of those French dishes that, as Miriam says in her blog’s recipe is old fashion (thanks Miriam for your recipe that has gave me a nice ground to develop mine and for your lessons about chemistry and onions). Yes, don’t deny it, everything that sound French don’t have to be modern and avant-garde. If you take off the bread and the cheese and the French, you get an onion soup and that doesn’t have any glamour at all.

But, well, it does sound French and it is French so I wasn’t going to be less than the other bloggers.

I’ve been told that the recipe was pretty good but I couldn’t taste it as the stock had potatoes. I even had a little scare as I almost try it. But, don’t you worry, I’m fine.

The smell was tremendous and the choice of a good quality cheese and bread helps. So, please, don’t hesitate on looking for a nice bakery and get some good baguette to make the recipe.
