French Onion Soup

Wednesday, September 9, 2009

Onion soup is one of my favorite comfort foods. After having a long day at work or on those cold winter days, a nice bowl of warm soup will cheer you up.

French Onion Soup

5 large onions, peeled and sliced thin
6 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. flour
1 large can beef broth (48 oz.)
2 beef bouillon cubes
1/2 c. port wine
1 tsp. Gravy Master
12 slices of Imported Swiss cheese
12 1/2 " slices of French bread toasted

In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.  Peel and slice onion very thin.  Cook onions in butter, stirring frequently for about 40 minutes or until golden brown.

Add flour to onions and stir.  Cook for about 3 minutes.

Add broth, port, bouillon cubes and Gravy Master.  Stir constantly until soup comes to a boil. Turn down to low and cover soup. Let simmer for about 20 minutes.

Cut and toast bread slices. Pour soup into 6 soup bowls and place twp pieces of toast and two slices of Swiss cheese.  Set under broiler (about 4 inches from the element) for about 3 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden brown.
