When Nana comes to stay we always try to make really delicious dinners. Tonight we decided on chef salad and onion soup. All day I kept thinking I really need to find time to look up an onion soup recipe, but as the hours past and the errands piled up that never happened. I ran to the grocery store and purchased the ingredients I thought would be perfect in my soup and hoped for the best. I was amazed at how wonderful this soup came out! I could not wait to photograph it and share it on my blog! It was ready and on the table in less than thirty minutes and went perfectly with our dinner salads! I hope you try this onion soup recipe in your home!
2 large yellow onions
1 stick butter
1 table spoon flour
1 cup white cooking wine
1 32 ounce beef stock or broth
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 Bay leaf ( remove before serving )
Swiss Cheese (I used 4 slices for 2 soups)
French bread ( I sliced it for a thin slice in each soup)
Slice onions and place in soup pot with 1 stick of butter. Let onions sweat down slowly in butter do not cook to fast or let get too brown. I cooked these for about 10 minutes slowly on medium / high heat. Once the onions look transparent add flour and stir for about 1 minute then add wine. Cook on high for 2-3 minutes. Salt and Pepper to taste. Add beef stock and bay leaf and boil for 15-20 minutes with lid on. Remove bay leaf. Add soup to oven safe bowls, add one slice of bread in each bowl, and cover with cheese. I used two slices of Swiss per bowl. Place in oven under broil for about 5 minutes until golden and bubbly!
