I absolutely love onion soup – it is probably my favorite soup to eat when it is made right. I’m super picky and can’t stand when onion soup is overpowered by salt and therefore rarely order it out. I love making onion soup at home for lunch or dinner but always feel like I need a little something to snack on with it and I think I may have found the perfect accompaniment, especially if you eat gluten free!
While I love having soup as a meal, my family tends to feel that it usually isn’t filling enough on its own and like when I make a few sides to go with it. When I was in San Francisco at the Fancy Foods Show, I was introduced to a a new brand called Brazi Bites. (If they sound familiar to you, you might have seen them featured on Shark Tank!) Brazi Bites are a bite sized Brazilian cheese bread and they come in a variety of delicious flavors. Since they are made with tapioca flour, they are naturally gluten-free.
Brazi Bites come frozen in small pieces which bake in the oven for 20 minutes and magically transform into little bites of Heaven.
They bake up all soft and fluffy in the middle and crispy on the outside. Since my favorite onion soup is also gluten-free, Brazi Bites make the perfect side dish!

And now for the easy onion soup recipe…
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 medium/large onions, thinly sliced
- 28 oz of chicken broth (I love chicken bone broth for this recipe!)
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cube of beef bouillon
- 4 tbsp dry sherry
- ½ C grated Parmesan cheese
- 4 oz shredded Swiss cheese
- salt & pepper to taste
- Preheat your broiler.
- Heat the oil in a large pot.
- Add onions and cook while stirring until golden (about 10-15 minutes).
- Increase heat and add chicken broth, Worcestershire sauce, bouillon, and sherry.
- Bring to a boil then simmer over low heat for 5 minutes.
- Add Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and simmer for another 3 minutes.
- Pour soup into 4 heat proof bowls, top each with Swiss cheese and put under the broiler until hot and bubbly
- Sprinkle shredded Swiss on top of soup and serve.
- Pro tip - if I'm serving this to any kids, I use the second option as the crocks get quite hot under the broiler.
