    Crocheting Mama's Note:

    I found this recipe on the back of the Swanson broth can. I am posting for ZWT3 as this is a classic French recipe and this seems a lot easier than most recipes and doesn't make a TON! There are 580 pages of results for French Onion Soup so I did the best I could to not duplicate! Hope this is ok and I hope this recipe turns out as good as it looks.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 3/4 lb onion, halved and thinly sliced (about 2 1/2 cups)
    • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 2 (14 ounce) cans reduced-sodium fat-free beef broth (Swanson recommended, 3 1/2 cups total)
    • 1/4 cup dry white wine or 1/4 cup dry vermouth
    • 4 slices French bread, toasted (optional -- rub bread with garlic clove before toasting)
    • 1/2 cup swiss cheese, shredded


    1. 1
      Heat oil in saucepot. Add onions. Cover and cook over low heat 15 minutes.
    2. 2
      Uncover. Add sugar and cook over medium heat 15 minutes, or until onions are golden.

      I'm a huge fan of French Onion Soup, and I must say this is one of the BEST recipes I've tried on Zaar. The wine really adds a special something to this dish. The sugar is also pleasant, which you wouldn't really expect but it adds to the flavor of the onions. I did broil the toast and cheese for a minute or two before serving. Thanks so much for sharing. I will be making this many times!
