Talking Best French Onion Soup I have ever made

FRENCH ONION SOUP

"Thick slices of French bread are toasted in the oven and placed on top of each bowl of rich onion soup. Slices of Swiss cheese are melted over the toast."

INGREDIENTS:
1/4 cup butter
3 onions, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup red wine ( I didn't have any)
2 (10.5 ounce) cans condensed
beef broth
1 French baguette or thick bread
8 ounces sliced Swiss cheese or Parm. Regg.

DIRECTIONS:
1.Melt butter or margarine in a 4 quart saucepan. Stir in sugar. Cook onions over medium heat for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.2.Stir in flour until well blended with the onions and pan juices. Add water, wine, and beef broth; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low. Cover soup, and simmer for 10 minutes.3.Cut four 1 inch thick slices of bread from the loaf. Toast the bread slices at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) just until browned, about 10 minutes. Reserve the remaining bread to serve with the soup.4.Ladle soup into four 12 ounce, oven-safe bowls. Place 1 slice toasted bread on top of the soup in each bowl. Fold Swiss cheese slices, and fit onto toasted bread slices. Place soup bowls on a cookie sheet for easier handling.5.Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 10 minutes, or just until cheese is melted

Cooking and shopping are two of my favorite things. I love to cook now that I don't HAVE to. When hubby says he is hungry I can just point him in the direction of the kitchen...

I am making this today. It is so cold outside...a day for hot soup!

Don't know how I missed this one, because onion sop is one of my all-time favorites! This made me lonesome for so many of our buddies, too.

Here is another possibility for French Onion soup. At most a couple of hours to make. It's a grey, rainy, severe weather threatening type day...perfect for French Onion soup (if only I didn't have to go to the grocery store!) This recipe will serve 8

Ingredients:

•4 large yellow onions, cut in large dice
•1/2 stick unsalted butter
•1 tbsp sherry vinegar
•1/4 cup dry sherry wine
•2 sprigs fresh thyme
•1/2 tsp salt
•fresh ground black pepper to taste
•1 bay leaf
•3 cups high-quality beef broth
•3 cups high-quality chicken broth
•1 cup water
•For the topping:
•toasted French bread
•8 oz shredded Gruyere cheese, or other Swiss cheese

Directions:

In a large soup pot, melt the butter over med-low heat. Add the onions and salt; slowly cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are golden-brown - about 30 minutes.

Add the vinegar and sherry; cook for 5 minutes, and then add the remaining ingredients. Simmer on low for one hour. Taste and adjust seasoning. Ladle into heatproof bowls, or crocks, and top with a piece of toasted bread (cut to fit top of bowl).

Cover with the cheese, and place under a preheated broiler until the cheese melts and begins to brown. Serve hot.
