Tips or Notes:

  • To speed up the onion caramelization process, you can add a pinch of sugar, which helps the onions brown more quickly.
  • If you prefer a thicker soup, you can mix a tablespoon of cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water and stir it into the soup before serving.
  • Be cautious when broiling the soup with the cheese topping to prevent burning. Keep a close eye on it.
