I made soup this last night. I'm so glad I did! I LOVE French Onion soup (and the cheese!) and love sampling it whenever I go out to eat.
This was super easy to make (and I am pretending all that butter is really good for my health! LOL)
Try it and see what you think- just know that there are onions, and you may also wake up like me, tasting onions (but relishing the idea of that soup for dinner).
Heat butter and oil together, add onions, garlic and sugar. Cook over low heat stirring occasionally for about 30 until bottom of the pot is covered with a nutty brown film. Add stock and wine, bring to boil and simmer covered over low heat for about 1 hour.Spoon into oven proof bowl and top with a crouton then smother with Gruyere cheese. Place until broiler until cheese is bubbly and golden!
