Better than restaurant onion soup. Make the entire quantity and place in freezer in heavy duty freezer bags. When vidalias are in season, I double and triple the recipe to have the soup on hand.

This was delicious! It does take FOREVER to caramelize five pounds of onions, but it was worth the wait. I used the better than bullion stuff but I didn't heat it separately and then add it to the onions because I didn't want to dirty another big pot. I just added to bullion to the onions when they were ready and poured in 10 cups of boiling water. The soup was really rich and I can't imagine it would have tasted any better if I had cooked the stock separately.

I will have to make this again, only and let it cook longer. I didn't want my onions to be mush, and I was soooo hungry so I only cooked it 20 minutes after adding the wine and worceshershire sauce. I didn't like the flavor of the W sauce. I will try again and try to be more patient.
