A recipe I’ve been craving lately is my onion soup. Not only is it absolutely delicious, but it has toasted ciabatta bread and melty gruyère cheese on top.
My recipe is sort of a mix between French onion soup and Italian or Tuscan onion soup. They are similar, but do have some differences. I take a little bit from both traditional soups to create my own.
I use chicken broth for my recipe, and that is traditional for Tuscan onion soup, while French onion usually uses beef broth. Both have toasted bread, however French onion places it on top like I do, however Tuscan places the bread on the bottom of the bowl before the soup is ladled in. Finally, the cheese. Honestly, I have no idea what the traditional cheese is for Tuscan onion soup, however French onion traditionally uses Gruyère cheese so I guess that’s the direction I went with it.
