Unique Onion Gratin Soup Made with Sandwich Bread

You don't necessarily have to use french bread. At our house, we always use plain sandwich bread. The onion and bacon are full of savoury goodness, making this dish unique.

Half-strips of bacon
1 package (5 slices)
Sandwich bread
1 slice
500 ml

Black pepper

Shredded or sliced cheese
to taste


1. Mince or thinly slice the onion.
2. Cut the bacon into slices about 5 mm thick.
3. In a small sacuepan, heat the butter. Add the onions and stir over low heat, cooking slowly until they turn amber in colour.
4. Add the bacon to the pot. Separate the slices and cook until they are crispy.
5. Add the water. When it comes to a boil, add in the soup stock cubes, salt, and black pepper to taste.
6. While doing step 5, cut the bread into 9 and toast. Preheat the oven to 430°F/220°C.
7. Place the hot soup into individual heat-safe bowls. Add the bread and then the cheese. Quickly bake into the oven for 10 minutes.
