How to make it

  • The secret to making this soup really tasty is to sauté the onions on a fairly high heat so that they go golden brown and caramelise.
  • Peel and slice the onions whole so they are in rings then add them to a large pan with the butter. Turn the heat up to almost full, give them a good stir to coat with the melted butter and put a lid on the pan. Give them a stir now and then and you will find that they stick to the pan and burn slightly which is just what we want to get them nicely caramelised.
  • After about 15-20 minutes when they are nicely browned, add the beef stock, salt and black pepper and simmer gently for another 20 minutes.
  • Pour the soup into a bowl and float some croutons on the top. Spoon a few onions on to the toast and then sprinkle the cheese on top. Place under the grill until the cheese has melted.
  • Serve with some more toast, grated cheese and a smile
