French Onion Soup

I am not a real fan of French Onion soup but this was really good. I had decided to make it as it seemed the romantic type soup for a Valentine meal....can I say French? It just kind of fit the name to the occasion. I had thought about making it for years, but had had such nasty French Onion soups on the past, I thought why bother. Well my search for a romantic food to share with you kept coming back to French Onion soup. Okay, some of you really like the stuff so why not?

Much to my surprise, I liked the soup! I adapted the recipe from Sue Gregg cookbook Soups & Muffins. If you are interested in the cookbook, please note I can adjust the shipping to postal rates and save you some money! :) So, be on the wild side this Valentine's Day or for that matter any day. Make some French Onion soup and surprise yourself that you can be a gourmet cook! :)

French Onion Soup
3 quarts beef broth
1/2 cup butter
6 large onions sliced
1 minced garlic clove
1/4 tsp dry thyme
Dash of Worcestershire
1/2 tsp to 1 tsp salt
French bread (slice for each bowl)
Provolone Cheese

Step One: Caramelize sliced onions in butter. Use low heat and be sure not to burn them! Add minced garlic at end of saute process. Combine beef broth, onions and other seasonings. Simmer for about 30 minutes.

Step Two: Ladle into oven proof bowls. Place slice of whole wheat French bread on top of soup in bowl. Garnish liberally with cheese. Place soup bowls under broiler and broil till cheese is bubbling and browned.


Serve immediately. Enjoy!
