    WhiskingWings's Note:

    My (and my mom's) version of the classic French Onion Soup. Using Julia's recipe as a base, this uses butter and bacon fat to saute, gets a splash of cognac and a cup of wine along with the rich, flavourful beef stock. My stepbrother (who requested it in the first place) ate two huge bowls!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat a heavy saucepan over medium-low heat with the butter and bacon fat.
    2. 2
      Stir in the onions and cover.
    3. 3
      Cook slowly, stirring once or twice, until onions are tender and translucent, about 12 minutes.
    4. 4
      Stir in the salt and sugar, increase the heat to medium, and let the onions cook, stirring just enough to prevent burning, until brown (25 to 30 minutes).
    5. 5
      Sprinkle the flour and cook slowly, stirring constantly, for another 3 to 4 minutes.
    6. 6
      Remove from heat and whisk in 2 cups of hot stock.
    7. 7
      Return to the heat and bring to a simmer, adding the rest of the stock, thyme, Cognac, and wine.
    8. 8
      Cover and simmer over low heat for 1 1/2 hours.
    9. 9
      Remove thyme sprig and simmer a further 15 minutes, adding a little water if the liquid reduces too much. Taste for seasoning.
    10. 10
      Divide the soup between 6 ovenproof bowls.
    11. 11
      Arrange toast on top of soup and sprinkle 1/4 cup of grated cheese on top of each croute.
    12. 12
      Place bowls on a baking sheet and place under a preheated broiler until cheese melts and forms a crust over the tops of the bowls.
    13. 13
      Serve immediately.
