As ever, we adore our food with a bite. This is a recipe I played around with for awhile until I got it just as I like it. Feel free to play around with the spices, adding, or ommiting according to your preferences. I am estimating on the prep and cook time as it depends on your stove top, how thin you slice the onions and/or if you are slicing by hand, etc. Prep time also includes the frequent stirring required. It's also hard to give an exact serving amount, but I feed six people and there is usually enough left over for lunch for two, if not three, the next day. I do not care for sugar in my onion soup and have never had a problem getting the onions to carmelize without it.
