Fast and easy onion soup! Did add a wee bit of salt and a good grinding of pepper. Not able to get the bonox stock here, so used beef broth. Do think that a splash of red wine added while it is cooking would be awesome. The fond on the bottom of the pot gave it the nice dark brown colour. And I totally forgot the parsley. This is going to made alot over the winter. Thank you for sharing Tisme! Made for Pick Me! tag game.
