French Onion Soup (My Favorite)

Recipe by djlynnoleum
READY IN: 1hr 40mins




  • Melt butter in a stock pan.
  • Add onion, cover and sweat for 10 minutes.
  • Add sugar and molasses and stir well. Cover and continue cooking for 20 minutes.
  • 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).
  • Add beef broth, wine (if using), Worcestershire and pepper. Cover and simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally.
  • 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.
  • Place baguette slice in bowls and ladle soup over.
  • Enjoy, I personally add more black pepper when I eat this.
