      It is optional if you cannot find them, but they sure add an extra layer of richness to the broth.

    I love French onion soup and this one is literally the best I have ever had! It is so delicious, the family loved it. We were able to find ox tail at Walmart and tried it. It definitely makes a huge difference in the flavor.

    I could eat this year round- especially when Vidalia onions are in season. The oxtail sounds so good in this soup. So comforting and very warming this time of the year.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      I love Vidalia onions. I make this soup as soon as we start to have the first morning chill.
      Enjoy!
