This food image of mise en place ingredients for French onion soup was photographed for traditionally prepared French onion soup. Traditional French onion soup includes equal portions of beef and chicken broth, salt and pepper to taste, butter to fry the onions, onions, sherry, toasted slices of French bread, Worcestershire sauce and Gruyere cheese. Recipes recommend that you use the best Gruyere cheese that you can find as the cheese makes or breaks the French onion soup. But in a pinch you can also substitute mozzarella cheese, Rancelete or any cheese that melts fast.
