What is the best onion for French onion soup?
You can use white or yellow onions for this soup, but I wouldn’t recommend using red onion, otherwise it will be too sweet, but it depends on your taste.
Which white wine to use?
Use only dry white wine for this recipe, don’t use sweet wine, because the caramelized onions are already sweet, adding sweet will make the soup too sweet.

White wine is important to give the soup a deeper flavour, you will not fill the alcohol (and won’t be drunk J), but if you prefer skip the wine, you can use 1-2 tablespoons of vinegar instead.

Yes, to make a vegetarian version, replace beef stock with vegetable stock.

Yes, to make a vegan French onion soup, replace the butter with olive oil, replace the beef stock with vegetarian stock and omit the cheese.
Which cheese is the best for French onion soup:
In this recipe I used gruyere cheese. You also can use: Emmental, Gouda, Comte, Provolone, Mozzarella and more.

If you don’t have oven-safe bowl you can’t toast the bread with the cheese, and then top the soup and serve.
