Kellymac's French Onion Soup

Kellymac's French Onion Soup created by KellyMac6

I came up with this recipe because I couldn't find one that had all of the flavors I was looking for. I think the result is pretty delicious and the people I have served it to, all french onion soup elitists, have declared it one of the best they have had. I hope you will give it a shot!

    Kellymac, outstanding flavors! I loved this soup. So easy and really good! I used half TX sweet onions and half regular yellow, and I used a real Bourbon-barrel aged worcestershire sauce from Kentucky I buy at Whole Foods which is syrupy and delicious. Thanks for sharing!

    WOW!!!! This soup is delicious. Easy to make and soooooo good! I was looking for a recipe that used sherry and this one fit the bill. I topped it with homemade garlic croutons and a thin slice of provolone cheese.

    I would not call myself a french onion soup elitist, but I am a french onion soup lover! So far my favorite is Jason's Deli. This, however, is a close second. The only changes I made were to not use fresh ground pepper (I just don't like the taste of pepper that much so I use the really finely ground stuff) and to scale it back to serve two. This has a lovely flavor and smells great! Thanks for posting Kelly! [Made for Potluck Tag October 2009]
