Mom's French Onion Soup

Mom's French Onion Soup

"Onion soup a comfort on cold day" by Michael Hastings. Recipe Swap. Recipe from Cathy Bledsoe. Classic French Onion Soup. Beefy flavor may be tamed by using half beef broth and half chicken broth. Soup can be made with sweet onions, mozzarella instead of the traditional Swiss cheese and the addition of Worcestershire sauce to boost the flavor.
