Dustin and I both love French Onion soup. When we were in college we used to drop by The Keg restaurant and we'd both order a bowl of the French Onion soup and a house salad. Unfortunately, when we moved away from the town in which we met, we also moved away from The Keg. We finally decided to try making it at home a few years ago. And boy is it easy!
French Onion Soup
4 large yellow onions
1/4 cup butter
4-6 cups beef broth
Dash Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup gruyere cheese, shredded
4 slices French bread
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
Using a large pot, cook sliced onions in butter until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Add Worcestershire sauce and broth (we like lots of broth, so add until your desired consistency). Bring to a boil and then simmer for 30 minutes.
Place the bread on a nonstick cookie sheet and top with cheese. Broil on high until cheese is lightly browned and melted.
To serve, ladle soup into bowls and top with a piece of bread.
