How to cook onion soup:

  • Add the stock and season with salt.
  • Stir over low heat until it boils; then leave to simmer slowly for 10 minutes.
  • Butter and toast the sliced bread and put into the Soup tureen.
  • When toast rises to the top, sprinkle liberally with grated cheese and run under boiler for a few minutes to melt the cheese.
