French Onion Soup Recipe.

French onion soup is a favorite around here with my husband, two-year-old, and myself (of course). The other kids don't even care to try it yet. It was so funny the other day watching the baby violently and with much love slurp her soup up while her sister sat next to her eating a lollipop. I really need to start making larger quantities of it. I'm certainly not a professional chef so I'm not sure about the "right" way to make french onion soup, but I know what I like and this tastes good to me. My original recipe is as follows.

French Onion Soup Recipe.


3 white cooking onions
32 oz. beef broth
1/4 cup red cooking wine
1/8 cup milk
bay leaf
1/2 Tbs parsley
1/4 tsp basil
salt and pepper to taste

Peel and cut onions in half and then make long slices along the grain. Sautee onion in 2 Tbs butter until soft. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pot.

Cover and reduce heat to to medium. Once the soup begins to simmer reduce heat to low and cook for about 30 minutes, or until flavors fuse.

Toast bread of your choice and top with a slice of your favorite melty cheese. Put it in the bottom of your soup bowl and pour the french onion soup on top. Enjoy!

Recipe makes about 4 servings.
