Homemade Onion Soup Recipe

This onion soup recipe is with honesty one of my favourite soups and I don't usually like soups so that's saying a lot. This soup is great for cold days because it really warms you up.

I would not call this onions soup 'French' onion soup because it's missing three key things. First of all it is not based on beef broth, which I have heard is a key defining ingredient, but if you wanted to add this to this recipe you could. Second the onions were not caramelised onions. Finally this soup contains no alcohol so it's kid friendly.
