French onion soup recipes - 7 recipes

This is a fun food for me. I used to eat it all the time when I was young with my sister, at a cute French-style restaurant called La Madeleine's. We would eat the soup, then follow it by a double chocolate cookie. (Funny the food combinations we crave, eh?) Then I attempted to make it with my mom. We even went out of our way to find some quality gruyere cheese. Well, I was a bit too happy with the sugar while carmelizing the onions, and so the resulting soup was almost sickeningly sweet. I have a beautiful picture of it, though. Honeslty, the best french onion soup I've had is in France, so if you ever get a chance, go. On the other hand, why not just make it at home?
