French Onion Soup
We had one of those rare cold May weekends so I took the opportunity to make my mom’s French onion soup. It’s a simple, delicious meal perfect for a chilly afternoon.
4 large onions, sliced thinly
4 cups beef stock
1 TBSP butter
1 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
I sliced the onions with my kitchen mandolin. You can also just thinly slice them.
I sautéed the onion, butter and olive oil over medium heat for 6 minutes. The olive oil just keeps the butter from burning.
I added the stock, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper and cooked until the onions were soft.
I set the oven to broil and set my soup bowls on a lined baking tray. This makes clean up easy in case of spills.
I ladled the soup into the bowls and topped with slices of baguette and shredded mozzarella cheese.
I broiled the soup until the cheese was brown and bubbly.
Enjoy this quick meal with your family. It’s a crowd pleaser.
