French Onion Soup

Rumor has it that years ago a beautiful French woman named Marie was desperate for a divorce from her husband, but he would not consent. So to annoy him, she started cooking with the food that he hated most, onions. She put them in everything - sandwiches, salads, breads and yes, soup. Unfortunately, the plan backfired because the soup was so delicious, her husband asked for it everyday, and of course, he would never leave her. There's a moral here somewhere, I just can't think of it.

Ingredients

  • 4 onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons sherry
  • 5 cups beef broth
  • French Bread (day old if possible) cut into thick slices and toasted
  • Swiss Cheese slices

Steps

  1. Saute onions in butter & oil on medium heat until they brown
  2. Add salt & pepper - don't skimp on the pepper
  3. Remove from heat, add sherry and return to heat (we don't want flames)
  4. Cook briefly, then add beef broth and simmer for 30 minutes
  5. When ready, put soup in bowls, top with bread then cheese and place under broiler for a few minutes until brown & bubbly
