Classic French Onion Soup

I just happen to have two onions, garlic and left over beef broth made from Pressure Cooker Roast Beef. There are so many things you can do with beef broth….Maryland Crab Soup, Beef Barley Soup, Beef Stroganoff. These will all be upcoming recipes on Galley Pirates some day.
