Onion Soup Au Gratin

This is my all time comfort food. Especially on a cold day. Perfect paired with a light main dish or a stand alone light meal. It is filling and very flavourful. 

It may seem like this is a difficult soup to pull off, but it can be very simple. There are a few more traditional ways to make this soup but this one is super simple. 

You want your onions to look like this
Place bread on soup then cover with grated cheese

 Onion Soup Au Gratin

5 onions, sliced semi thin
3 cups of beef stock
1/4 tsp dried basil
1 bay leaf
pepper, to taste
enough crusty bread to cover the top of two bowls
about 1 cup of mozzarella cheese, more or less

1. Bring the beef stock to a boil. Add onions, basil, bay leaf and pepper.
2. Simmer until onions are soft.
3. Ladle into onion soup bowls. Add bread to the top then cover with cheese. Sprinkle with a bit extra basil.
4. Broil until cheese is bubbly and golden.
*Be careful the handles are very hot!

Hope you try this out and love it!
