As you probably know, I am a huge fan of Gina at Skinnytaste because her dishes are easy, but never lack on taste. I found a recipe for French Onion soup, my husband's favorite!
I adapted it very slightly, but Dave loved the changes and said it was exactly what French Onion soup should taste like. Score! And it was even so delicious that it is on our menu for this week too. Maybe this is a turning point for soup in my life.
Gina used swiss cheese for her soup, but we used a horseradish cheese from Cabot and it gave the soup a little extra kick. We made grilled cheeses with that cheese too!

Add the beef stock, salt & pepper to taste, reduce heat. Cover and simmer gently for about 20 minutes. Remove bay leaf and ladle 1-1/2 cups soup into 6 oven-proof bowls. Place bowls on a baking sheet. Place sliced toasted bread rounds into each bowl and top bread with cheese. Broil 2 to 3 minutes, until cheese melts.
