French Onion Soup

There are three secrets to making delicious French Onion Soup...
The first is long, slow cooking to develop the onion and garlic flavors.
The second is to use French bread with a sturdy crust...
so the slices stay intact as they float on top of the soup and
The third, use home-made beef broth for the base of  your
French Onion Soup.
