This soup was the only one I ate when I was younger. On rainy days, we’d come back home from school and we could just smell it. The best thing about it was the whole process. My mom would serve soup in an oven-friendly dish, grab a round toast, toss it in, top it all off with grated Emmental Cheese, and let it all heat up in the oven for about 7 minutes.

I used to think that onion soup was a complicated one to make, but turns out it is really easy. It could also be a great start for when you throw a dinner party at home, especially that you can make it ahead of time and add the cheese and bread as soon as your guests arrive.

So here goes!
