DIRECTIONS

  • Put butter in a large pot.
  • add the onions and sauté till translucent.
  • Add two tablespoons instant blending flour and stir well.
  • Add 4 cans of beef bouillion, and 3 cans of water.
  • Add 1-2 tsp black pepper.
  • Simmer, without letting boil, (I usually make in the morning and let simmer most of the day).
  • Taste test for strength of broth, you want it beefy-- add more bouillon if needed, and pepper if not peppery enough.
  • Fill french onion soup bowls with the soup.
  • Top with a Rusk, then grated mozzarella and parmesan.
  • Bake in hot oven 400 degrees till cheese is golden and bubbly.
  • You can brown up the cheese with the broiler if needed.
  • This makes quite a bit, but it stores in the fridge and can be re heated.
  • It will look yucky when you go to reheat as the butter comes to top and hardens-- but once heated is fine.
  • Enjoy!
