As I write this I just enjoyed an onion soup at a local family restaurant I've been to hundred of times over the years. I'm not sure if this is a new twist or if I've never ordered French Onion Soup here before but to my delight they served it with a slight twist I found absolutely delightful. Baked on top of the cheese was a lump of French's Fried Onions (not sure if actually French's but that's as close as I can explain) I've never seen this done before. The crunch was delightful baked into the gooey cheese!
I've never seen French Onion prepared this way and truly enjoyed it, too bad the soup itself wasn't that great.
