Mother Martin's restaurant in Montreal, Canada makes the best Onion soup ever - more savoury than sweet! This recipe is the closest to it that I've ever tasted and came from a French Canadian friend who lived in Quebec City. The number of servings will depend on the size of your bowls and the thickness of the French bread. Use Swiss or Gruyère if you prefer - it's your choice ..... Bon Appetit!!!
