French Onion Soup is a savory soup made with caramelized onions, beef broth, and usually topped with a slice of crusty bread and melted Gruyere cheese. It is a classic French dish that is often served as a starter to a meal or as a main dish. The onions are slowly cooked until they are caramelized, which gives the soup its rich, sweet flavor, and deep brown color. The beef stock provides a savory depth of flavor while the bread and cheese create a deliciously cheesy and crispy topping.
