cj, I love French onion soup. I will be right over for a bowl. I have never made it from scratch. It is very hard to make?

Thanks, I would love it. I am going shopping on Tuesday and I have the rest of the week off from work. So, I would have time to make the soup and it is suppossed to be snowy at the end of the week, so it would be perfect to have for dinner some night.

French Onion Soup
4 tablespoons butter
3 cups onions ( chopped or sliced) sliced is the normal way but... chopped is easier to eat.
4 cups beef broth
1/2 cup white wine
3 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
sliced French bread
swiss cheese
parm. cheese

Melt the butter in a large soup pan.
Add the onions and cook over med. heat until nice and brown.
Stir them every once in awhile so they don't burn.
Add broth, wine and worcestershire sauce and a dash of pepper.

Boil then reduce heat and simmer for 10 or 15 minutes.

You can eat it at this point or

put soup in oven safe bowls... top with a slice of bread... top that with the cheese.
Put soup in the oven and bake until the cheese is nice and melted. Turn the broiler on
if you want cooking time to go faster.

I often add stew meat
and sliced mushrooms to mine.

Enjoy!!!

Our guests just arrived from AZ, if they are not too tired, we'll probably go to a Taqueria around the corner from where they are staying. If they decide to stay in & order pizza, we will eat leftovers from last night...pad thai, grilled chicken & veggies with spicy peanut sauce. I'm hoping for the leftovers!
