There's nothing quite as comforting on a cold winter's day as a pot of homemade soup on the stove, ready to warm you, body and soul. One of my favorite soups has always been Onion Soup and the following soup is from the National Onion Association.
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 4 large yellow onions, sliced (about 9 to 11 ounces each)
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 quarts chicken broth
- 1⁄2 cup brandy (optional)
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1⁄2 French baguette, sliced and toasted
- grated romano cheese
- Melt butter in a large saucepan that holds at least 4 quarts.
- Add onions and cook over medium heat 12 minutes,or until tender and golden. Stir often.
- Add sugar and cook, stirring for 1 minute.
- Add broth; cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 12 minutes.
- If desired, add brandy; cook 2 minutes longer.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- To serve, ladle soup into a bowl; float toast on soup. Sprinkle with cheese.
This is one good soup.Will make it again.
