Here is another recipe that I wanted to share with you. I can't say that is was anything out of the normal, but it was an easy, standard french onion soup recipe. It is certainly worth making on a cool night, and any excuse to use a kitchen torch is worth making too! I hope you like it!
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
4 onions, chopped
1 ¼ cups water
3 cans beef broth, 10 ½ oz each
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup white wine
¼ teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon dried parsley
8 oz shredded mozzarella
1 French baguette, in ½ inch slices
Sauté the onions in the butter in a big pot over a medium heat for 10 minutes or until they are soft.
Stir in the flour, sugar, and pepper, then add the water, beef broth, thyme, and parsley and simmer the soup for 10 minutes.
Add the wine and simmer it for another 10 minutes.
Preheat the broiler and fill individual bowls ¾ full with soup.
Put a slice of bread on top of each one and top it with the mozzarella.
Broil until the cheese is bubbly and starting to turn golden.
