Onion Soup

IMG_0420

After a couple of weeks of hard work, here I am again. When I got rid of all my work stress I realized that I’ve catched a pretty big cold. So…what do I do when I need to get well soon? I cook me a very warm soup. Onion soup is even more perfect for the task, because onions help a lot with the congestion. That’s what I’ll be eating for the next few days, hoping to get well very soon 🙂

Ingredients for 4 servings

  • 4 large yellow onions, sliced thin
  • 50 gr butter
  • “Baguette” bread, sliced and toasted brown (approx. 16 slices, 4 each serving)
  • 1 “Maggi Cube” – bouillon cube or stock cube
  • 2 liters water
  • 4 eggs
  • 120 gr (30 gr slice each) cheese, like Manchego, Havarti or Gruyère
  • oregano

Preparation

In a large pot melt butter and add the thin sliced onions over medium high heat. Stir and cook onions for about 15 minutes or until really soft and tender. Add the stock cube, smash it and mix it with the onions, add 1/2 liter water and stir breaking up any browned bits on the bottom of pan. Pour in the rest of the water and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 10 – 15 minutes.
Meanwhile turn your oven on to grill and prepare oven safe bowl. Ladle the soup into bowls, break an egg inside the soup, divide the toasted baguette slices (4 or 5 each) among the bowls, top each bowl with cheese. Carefully place in oven and grill until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Be careful when serving, the bowls would be very hot, warn your guests about this too! 😉
