Oooh-la-la, the French have given some great gifts to the United States. Who knows whether French Onion Soup is even a good choice in faraway France. Doesn’t matter. It sure can warm February days in the good ole USA.
French Onion Soup
3 onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 Tablespoons flour
3 cans beef broth
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 cup water
6 to 8 slices French bread, toasted
6 to 8 slices Provolone cheese
In medium saucepan, sauté onions in butter until soft (about 20 minutes). Stir in flour and gradually add broth, water and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil.
Simmer for about 20 minutes. Place 1 slice of toasted French bread in soup bowl or ramekin. Cover with 1 to 2 slices of the Provolone cheese. Bake at 425 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is slightly melted. Serves 6 to 8 people.
