Best French Onion Soup Recipe

18-minute recipe Serves 4
This quick-fix French onion soup recipe is on the table in under 20 minutes! Our shortcut? Simmered onion broth (caramelized onions take time and there's not always enough of that in the day).

Top it with toasted, crusty slices of bread and broil in the oven (don't forget oven-safe bowls) until the Gruyère cheese is bubbling hot.
