French onion soup gets its full-bodied taste from slow-cooked, caramelized onions. Here, we call for three types of onions for rich, balanced flavor, but the recipe will work with any combination or just one variety. The onion mixture can be made up to two days ahead. Serve with a green salad. French Onion Soup Tartines, 3.5 out of 4 based on 4 ratings
