Watch how to make a batch of aromatic, hearty soup that feeds a crowd and turns your kitchen into a French bistro. Tender caramelized onions are simmered in beef broth with a touch of sherry and thyme. For the finishing touch, we pour the soup into individual bowls and top with French bread and three cheeses! They go under the broiler until the bread crisps up and the cheese melts and bubbles. Get the recipe for Rich and Simple French Onion Soup. A tossed green salad on a side and perhaps a glass of red wine, and dinner is ready.
