French Onion Soup
This is a family favorite - traditionally had on Christmas Eve. Credit my SIL Cathy for asking for seconds.... (WHY didn't We think of that!)
I now make several pots a year. I'm the only one at my house who eats it so I eat it every meal for several days. Good crusty bread, smoked provolone, Fiestaware dish and a few minutes under the broiler. Heaven...
Marjie's French Onion Soup
3-4 cans Campbell's Beef Buillone
2 cans water
1 can dry white wine
5 large sweet onions
a buncha butter
pinch of sugar
Slice onions into rings. Over low heat sweat the onions in the butter & sugar until they are soft and transluscent. Seriously, the last time I made this it took 2 COMPLETELY WORTH IT hours. Add in liquids and simmer for a couple hours.
To serve - put in ovenproof bowl, top with crusty bread and smoke provolone and broil. I like my cheese broiled to brown spots!
