How to Make Onion Soup

This onion soup is one of the simpler French recipes to make and combines a salty-sweet flavor.

Cook the bacon over medium heat in a 3-qt. pot until lightly browned. Add the onions then sprinkle the flour into the pot and stir it in until well mixed. Add the lettuce and saute for 2 minutes. Add the butter and stir until melted.
Add the hot chicken broth, tomatoes, nutmeg, pepper, and the half & half. Heat the soup to boiling, stirring constantly, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
Mix together the mayonnaise and sour cream. Serve each portion of soup with a dollop of the mayonnaise mixture topped with crumbled bacon.
