French Fridays with Dorie – Cheese-Topped Onion Soup

by Jessica on February 24, 2012

Cheese-Topped Onion Soup |

I’ve never been a huge fan of plain white onions. Give me green onions any day and I’m a happy gal. But this soup turned out to be so amazing, I had leftovers the next afternoon and wished there was enough for a second dinner, too!

Last Sunday night was a chilly one, so this was the perfect recipe for the occasion. My cute fire-builder was unfortunately out of town, so we sat around in our pjs and devoured a couple of bowls each… pretending we had a nice fire to sit in front of. The soup was warm and comforting and so was the company. This is definitely a ‘repeat’ recipe (especially with the Roasted Garlic Italian bread I topped it with!)! 🙂

Delicious! Roasted Garlic Cheese-bread sounds wonderful with this soup. I’m wishing for cooler weather, we’ve already reached the 90’s which is a smidge too warm for February.

This would be all the comfort I need for a rainy day (like today in NYC). Looks awesome Jessica.
