Spring Sweet Onion Soup with Gruyere Cheese Baguettes

Sweet onion season is in which means I’m making tons of onion soup and having some pretty rough breath for the foreseeable future! While sweet onions are good enough to be eaten raw, they are extra sweet and go perfect in just about anything, especially salsas. I’ve always been a huge onion soup fan no matter what time of the year it is, but especially when there is still a bit of chill in the air in the early spring this soup just hits the spot. It’s not overly heavy and it’s absolutely bursting with delicious onion and stock flavor. To be sure that you caramelize all of the onions you will need as much cooking surface area as possible so that’s why a rondeau is key for making this Spring Sweet Onion Soup with Gruyere Cheese Baguette. Enjoy!
