Baked Onion Soup

There are few soups more comforting to me than savory, flavorful Baked Onion Soup. I think the first time I had it I was 5 or 6, and it was at this restaurant-bar-club spot called Gallagher’s. The special crock of bubbling, molten hot soup wafting its way towards me in the restaurant.. I can still picture it today.

Gallagher’s played a big part in my childhood. My dad’s band had a standing gig there every Friday and Saturday night for about five years. I think we ate pretty much everything on the menu in that time. But I always went back to that soup.

The restaurant is long gone now, replaced by a Marie Callendar’s. Where the bar and stage were is now their private party room. It makes me a little sad, but mostly nostalgic. When I made this Baked Onion Soup from Sargento’s website the other night, I was taken right back to Gallagher’s.

When smoking was still allowed in restaurants, and the sound of my dad singing Top 40 hits soothed me through my dinner, and to sleep hours later on chairs pushed together in a dark corner.

It wasn’t a typical childhood, but it sure was fun.

I was a little shocked at myself that I’ve never made this soup before. It seriously could not be easier. The hardest thing I did was chop onions. (And come on, that’s not really so hard, especially with big, yellow, sweet ones.)

In no time at all I had a hearty, robust Baked Onion Soup covered in swiss cheese and parmesan. Dipping your spoon in, getting all that melty cheese and soppy baguette.. it’s what dreams are made of, I tell you.

Memories :) It is very nice as you can eat what you ate when you were a child. I think that these foods have in them some magic :) So, I did try this soup. You got some food which often have you been?
