Ww Onion Soup

READY IN: 26mins
Recipe by Matt Gardner

Maintain the rich flavor of this classic soup by stir-frying the onions in dry sherry and adding a dash of Worcestershire sauce * We updated the French Onion Soup by: o Stir-frying the onions in dry sherry instead of butter. o Removing the fat from the beef broth. o Switching to a strong-flavored Parmesan cheese and grating it so we could reduce the amount used but still cover the bowl.

I'm the only one in the family that eats French onion soup. Usually I have to go out or wait for an event like PAC to justify making it. Tonight was such a treat! The first thing I thought when pouring in the sherry was that it already smelled like an authentic bowl of French onion soup. I used gluten-free French bread that I bake at work, and I put it all under the broiler for a few minutes to melt and brown the cheese. Delicious! Thanks so much for posting this super easy, healthy and satisfying recipe, Matt! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2011 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :D http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=363796&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
