French onion soup (sopa de cebollas francesa)

This soup is absolutely wonderful. Of those I would be happy  do it again soon ... 
There are many variations of the onion soup but I loved this. 
In many recipes there are not one  recipe are variations of the same recipe. 
For me this was delicious. The amount of onions. The baguette bread. . cheese. Delicious...... 
Here though there sun  some  days is still really cold.. 
And elsewhere autumn approaches so this soup is perfect for everyone.

Sopa de cebollas

Que tal una sopita para esos dias del 18 cuaqndo se espera el asado ?o puede ser despues si se quiere arreglar el cuerpo.
Cuando hago esta sopa sólo como eso y tomo una copa de vino.
Me encanta esta receta . De todas las que he probado es la que más me gusta y es deliciosa.
Como en muchas recetas hay muchas versiones esta me gusto por la cantidad de cebolla (hay unas que usan mucha) el queso y todo.
Quedó perfecta.
Ahora si alguien quiere puede agregar más cebolla (1 más) mis cebollas no eran grandes. Medianas.
Si no se tiene pan baguette se puede usar cualquier pan rústico.

Adaptada de mi libro  de recetas francesas.
