I got some bones at the store a couple days ago and after roasting them and simmering them for close to 24 hours, they smell heavenly. So I sautéed a couple huge onions golden.

Now, I'm trying to figure out what makes a meal out of it. Any ideas?

Just a nice Rhone or Burgundy and a crusty loaf!

When I make this soup, I find it so satisfying, it almost needs no accompaniment other than a good red wine and maybe a green salad lightly dressed with O&V. I toast the bread first ('cause I hate soggy bread) before I melt the cheese under the broiler. You are making me hungry.

We had cups of soup rather than bowls (it's good but messy to eat and there's a distinct question of how long we can watch one another struggle with strings of hot cheese and floppy lengths of onion...). So we had it with Swedish meatballs and steamed tiny, multicolored potatoes. The creamy gravy was a nice accent to the soup.

Thanks for your ideas. If you're still feeling up to a challenge, I've got quite a bit of beef stock still simmering...

I'm with Peachydeva - that's pretty much a perfect meal for me. I could also see pouring some of it over thickly sliced potatoes with maybe some crispy lardons and baking it. Then just serve it as a side with a roast chicken and some crispy green beans. Or a grilled steak. Or some salmon!

Onion soup with bread and cheese is a meal to me, but if you need dessert I think coconut ice cream would be perfect. See Clotilde's latest post..
