French Onion Soup March 25, 2010

Filed under: Soup — TeamModine @ 6:01 pm

4 onions, thinly sliced

1/2 stick of butter or margarine

1-2 Tbsp olive oil

Melt butter with oil. Add onions and cook over medium heat 20 min or so. (I did this with a 12″ skillet, then transferred to my stock pot.) You want them to have a nice caramel color, but not burnt. Add a pinch of thyme, about 1/2 tsp.

5 beef bouillon cubes

5 cups of water

Dissolve cubes in water.

Pour into pot with onions.

Add a couple shakes of worcestershire sauce.

Simmer another 20 min.

Top with french bread toasted with cheese on it.
