Recipe Thursday

French Onion Soup

From the Kitchen of Robyn Warner.
This is so tasty we have it once a week at our house. Better than our neighborhood restaurant.

6 onions
1 clove garlic
3 Tbsp Butter (I omit this to save calories/fat)
4 cans beef broth
1 1/2 tsp worchestshire sauce
1 pkg Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1/8 tsp black pepper
Baguette style bread
1/2 cup swiss cheese

1. In large skillet, cook onions, garlic and butter 30-40 minutes until tender. (Covered)
2. Add beef broth, worchestshire, pepper, and onion soup. Cook 1 1/2 hours on med/low heat or slow cooker for 5 hours low or 2 1/2 hours high.
3. Serve topped w/baguette and cheese.

Sometimes I used croutons instead of bread and it actually tastes pretty good. I also often use Sargento shredded parmesan cheese and it melts so nicely in the soup.
