French Onion Soup

French Onion Soup

Chloe and I team up to make a simple twist on a French onion soup! We filmed this on one of the hottest days of the Year but it was actually super delicious and extremely easy to make, the cheesy baguette topping can be baked into the soup as it cooks away or you can add them on at the end as we did in the video....there's plenty of twists and variations on this, but this was a fun, minimalistic and super easy recipe that really packs a punch, proper wholesome! Hope you try it :)
