The trick to this easy French onion soup recipe is to make sure you caramelize the onions - this requires slow cooking. I usually put the burner on just above low and clean up the kitchen as the onions are cooking so I can watch them.
The final step in this recipe is browning the cheese topped soup in the oven and you will need special oven proof French onion soup bowls to do this.
