    djlynnoleum's Note:

    A slightly sweeter, stronger flavored French Onion Soup recipe than most I've seen published. It's not diet food, but it sure is delicious! A mix of different onions also adds to the flavor. I've tweaked it over the years, and this is what I have found to be my favorite. I make it at least twice a month. It's an easily modifiable recipe to suit your taste, but seriously, I can't live without the molasses - it gives it a real depth.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Melt butter in a stock pan.
    2. 2
      Add onion, cover and sweat for 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add sugar and molasses and stir well. Cover and continue cooking for 20 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add flour and stir well to evenly distribute and avoid flour lumps, this will take a minute or two ( I add the flour a bit at a time to stop it from clumping).
    5. 5
      Add beef broth, wine (if using), Worcestershire and pepper. Cover and simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally.
    6. 6
      Put a layer of cheese on a baguette slice for each bowl of soup you will be serving. Bake in a 400°F oven until cheese has melted and starts to slightly brown.
    7. 7
      Place baguette slice in bowls and ladle soup over.
    8. 8
      Enjoy, I personally add more black pepper when I eat this.

      There was a sale today on Vidalia onions and I just love onion soup so I figured I would give this a try. Fabulous recipe and the molasses is key to the unique flavor. A definite keeper - thanks for sharing!
