A warm soup for a cold night: French Onion Soup

This is a recipe I borrowed from my friend Michelle. More to come about my visit with her.

Until then....

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).

Michelle says, "Oh this recipe is so yummy and easy!!!! I tend to skip the bread (crouton) because I don't like it but I do like the cheese. No biggie if you don't have the cheese either because it is so good without!"

3 1/2 cups of thinly sliced onions
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 c butter
2 tbs olive oil
1/2 tsp sugar
2 pints of beef stock
1 1/4 c. white wine
salt and pepper to taste

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!
