French Onion Soup – Delicious Goodness

This is a really great recipe for French Onion soup.  I love this because it’s made with chicken broth, and it’s got a little sweetness to it, and with the tanginess of the cheese,  it just melts in your mouth.  It’s so easy and such a great dish on a cool day.  It’s also a quick dish for dinner if you’re in a hurry, or just want something really hearty.  You’ll love this one.

How To Make French Onion Soup

In a heavy-bottomed roaster or pot, add the butter to the pot, and when it melts, add the sliced onions, sprinkle them with the garlic salt, and seasoned pepper, and toss them in the pot.  Saute the onions, until they’re lightly caramelized, then turn the heat to low, and stir in the brown sugar and bacon, and toss the onions and bacon evenly in the sugar.  let simmer for 10 minutes.  Add the bullion cubes, and water, and turn heat to medium.  Make sure the bullion cubes dissolve in the water and stir occasionally.  Let the soup simmer for about 15 minutes, making sure the bullion has dissolved.

Slowly, stir in the flour, and thicken the broth just a bit.  Let soup simmer again for about 10 minutes, over low heat.  Turn off heat, and place soup bowls, or dishes on a sturdy cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.   Ladle the soup into large soup dishes.  Place one or two of the crusty pieces of bread on top of the soup, and place 2 or 3 slices of the Swiss cheese on top of the dishes.  When all soup dishes are filled and topped with bread and cheese, place the cookie sheet in the oven, under the broiler until the cheese is bubbly, and golden brown on top.  When cheese is browned, remove the cookie sheet from the oven, and place the soup dishes on plates.  Serve at once.  Enjoy!

Makes 4 – 6 large bowls of soup.

NOTE:  If you can’t get Crostini’s at your local bakery, you can use slices of French bread, and toast them slightly before adding them to the soup.  You can also use crunchy croutons if you prefer.
