Tasty Tuesday: French Onion Soup
I’ve never been a huge fan of onions and so I always thought I wouldn’t like French Onion Soup. Last year at a friend’s birthday brunch, I had my first taste of French Onion Soup and realized how delicious it was!
Recently I was hungry for it again and decided to try making it myself. I was a little worried I wouldn’t be able to recreate that rich, delicious flavor I remembered, but I wasn’t disappointed. I used beef broth that I had frozen from when I made pot roast and it tasted wonderful! I really don’t know if I would even try making it with canned broth. I’m just afraid it would miss that rich flavor that homemade broth has. But you do whatever you want!
Anyway, here’s the recipe I used…easy as can be.
3 c. thinly sliced Vidalia or sweet onions
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. flour
4 c. beef broth or 3 (10 oz.) cans
6 slices French bread
Place butter and onions in a large saucepan. Cover and cook slowly for 15 minutes. Blend in salt and flour. Add beef broth and heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour. Pour into oven proof soup bowls or cups. Top with a slice of French bread and a slice of cheese. Broil for a few minutes until cheese is melted.
Yield: 5-6 servings
