French Onion Soup Recipe

We love French Onion Soup! This French Onion Soup recipe is from my husband's Grandmother and we just love it. Enjoy!

FRENCH ONION SOUP
  • 1 lb. sliced onions (2 - 2 1/2 cups)
  • 2-3 Tbsp. butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • toasted French bread or baguette slices, or croutons
  • 6 tsp. Parmesan cheese
  • 6 slices Gruyere or Provolone cheese
  • parsley

Saute onions in butter until clear. Add seasonings and sherry. Simmer for a few minutes. Add broth and cook for 20 more minutes.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Ladle in 6 oven-proof bowls. Add bread, grated Parmesan cheese and a slice of Gruyere or provolone cheese on top. Bake until cheese is melted and starting to brown. Or, you can put them under the broiler for a minute to melt the cheese. Garnish with parsley.

Serves 6.
