- 1¼ quart (1.25 lt) meat stock or bouillon
- 6 medium onions (white or yellow, but not red)
- ½ cup (115 g) butter
- 1 Tbsp (15 ml) worcestershire sauce
- 6 slices french bread
- Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper
- In a heavy soup pot over medium heat, melt the butter;
- Add sliced onions and brown slowly and carefully;
- Add broth, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to taste and simmer until onions are tender;
- Toast the bread, butter it and sprinkle generously with the cheese;
- Place bread on top of onion soup in large serving pan, place under broiler until cheese melts;
- Serve immediately;
- This may be served in individual bowls.
- Tip: If you don't have a broiler, place the toasted buttered bread with cheese in hot oven until cheese is melted, and then serve on the hot steaming soup.
- If you prefer a thicker soup, add a tablespoon of flour when browning the onions. Make sure the flour is cooked through to avoid floury taste.
