Cheese-Topped Onion Soup


It feels so good to be back cooking with the French Fridays with Dorie group!

We returned from Hawaii and jumped straight into the 2012 school year.
Information nights, homework, band practice, sports try-outs, catching up with friends and trying to establish some semblance of routine!

Then there’s all the after school activities. Winding up summer sports and registering and trying out for winter sports has kept us busy!

And so has enjoying the last few weeks of summer!
Hanging out at the beach, the kids learning to surf and kayak.
It’s been fun!
And crazy!
And hectic.

I made the brioche last week…
and loved the Nutelle Tartine!

But I forgot to take photos of the final product!

I’ve always wanted to try onion soup so I knew I had to get my act together this week!

And I think it was well worth it!

We all loved this week’s recipe, especially the cheesy bread on top.
It added so much flavour and depth to the final product.
I will definitely make this again.
But might wait for cooler weather next time!

Can’t wait to see what everyone else at French Fridays with Dorie thought of this recipe!
