I've been seeing the most beautiful onions at our local farmers' market and I can never resist buying a bunch. As a kid, I wasn't the biggest onion fan, probably since my grandmother added them to everything and so the house always smelled strongly of them. Yet as the years have passed, I have come to love onions. While both of my kids have craved them raw from the time they could chew (go figure?!), I much prefer my mine cooked.
Luckily I never have to twist my kids' arms to get them eat onions, but when they're cooked down to a buttery perfection in this French Onion Soup and topped with bread cubes and gooey Swiss it brightens my onion-obsessed kids faces to a new onion-loving level. Big time happiness!
