This simple, flavourful recipe delivers on the delicious flavour of French Onion Soup in a fraction of the time.



  1. In a large pot, heat butter over medium-high. Add onions; cook for 5-8 minutes, stirring often, or until golden brown. Add chopped garlic; cook 1-2 minutes longer.
  2. Add broth and bring to simmer. Reduce heat, cover and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes or until onions are tender.
  3. While soup is simmering, prepare baguette. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C) Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  4. Slice baguette into eight 2 cm thick rounds; transfer to prepared baking tray. Top each round with roughly 1 tbsp (15 mL) grated cheese. Set aside.
  5. When soup is ready to serve, bake baguette rounds for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  6. Portion soup into 4 serving bowls. Carefully float 2 baguette rounds in each bowl. Rest 5 minutes before serving for baguette to soften slightly.

Recipe Tips

  • For a traditional broiler finish: Preheat broiler to high; place four broiler-safe bowls on a baking sheet. Portion hot soup into bowls; top each with two baguette slices then cover liberally with grated cheese. Broil on top rack of oven for 1-4 minutes, watching closely, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Carefully remove tray from oven and serve. Bowls will be very hot!
  • Try using different cheeses for an extra twist! Havarti, smoked gouda, aged cheddar or even a spicy Jalapeno cheese are all great options.
  • Adding garlic helps to deepen flavour with a shorter cook time; increase or decrease the amount to taste.
