French Onion Soup

For the love of onions, make this soup!

Here's what you'll need:

You might like it topped with cheese. This is my favorite.

Melt butter and olive oil in a large pot or dutch oven over medium heat.

Slice onions...lots of onions!

Place onion slices in pot and cook on medium heat.

Saute' the onions until softened. I cooked mine for approximately 20 minutes.

Boil one cup water, then add two beef bouillon cubes to water and let cubes dissolve.

 Add bouillon mixture to onions.

Add beef broth.

Add garlic.

Add thyme.

Add salt.

 Add pepper and Worcestershire sauce.

Stir and simmer for 30 minutes.

Served mine topped with cheese and fresh cracked black pepper. Delicious with garlic toast.

French Onion Soup

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste 

Slice onions. Place butter and oil in large pot or dutch oven and heat over medium heat until butter is melted. Add sliced onions and saute' until onions are soft and translucent..about 15 to 20 minutes, all the while stirring the onions frequently. Add beef broth (and dissolved beef bouillon, if using). Add garlic, thyme, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 20 minutes, then serve. May top with cheese, if desired.
