French Onion Soup


A friend made mention not long ago that onion soup is great for colds. I knew eating onions and garlic was good for them but never put two and two together. I LOVE French Onion soup but had never found that one recipe....TILL NOW.

Here is my yummy adapted French Onion Soup recipe. The recipes I saw online mostly had sugar or wine in them. Since I don't want to use sugar and I don't have wine in the house, here's what I came up with. I think it turned out very nice.

Ingredients:
4 cups thinly sliced vidalia onions
1/4 cup butter
4 cups beef broth
pepper to taste
french bread
swiss cheese

Directions:
1. Melt butter in pan and add onions. Cook slowly over a medium/low heat for 20-30 minutes till almost carmalized.
2. Add in pepper and beef broth and bring to a boil.
3. Reduce heat to simmer and simmer for 20 minutes.
4. If desired, slice french bread and put on baking pan. Top with shredded cheese and broil till cheese is a bit bubbly. Add on the top of soup when serving.

Looks YUMMY Mandi!! You can come and cook for me anytime! HEY I purchased some whole wheat cupcakes with toasted coconut on them yesterday and they were good. (At Coldwater applefest) I didn't notice they were whole wheat until I bought them. I was suprised...hee hee although I will say that mine are better! ROFL!!

Hey, move a little closer and I'll cook for you every day :) The cupcakes sound yummy! Yeah, you can never get the same taste from something that is made with whole wheat vs white flour but it doesn't mean they aren't good. I'm glad you liked them!
