French Onion Soup 


We had one of those rare cold May weekends so I took the opportunity to make my mom’s French onion soup. It’s a simple, delicious meal perfect for a chilly afternoon.


4 large onions, sliced thinly

4 cups beef stock

1 TBSP butter

1 TBSP olive oil

1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce

1 TBSP lemon juice

1 tsp garlic powder

Salt and pepper to taste


I sliced the onions with my kitchen mandolin. You can also just thinly slice them.


I sautéed the onion, butter and olive oil over medium heat for 6 minutes. The olive oil just keeps the butter from burning.


I added the stock, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper and cooked until the onions were soft.


I set the oven to broil and set my soup bowls on a lined baking tray. This makes clean up easy in case of spills.


I ladled the soup into the bowls and topped with slices of baguette and shredded mozzarella cheese.


I broiled the soup until the cheese was brown and bubbly.


Enjoy this quick meal with your family. It’s a crowd pleaser.
