French Onion Soup


French Onion Soup

I recently read on the cover of a magazine that January is “soup month.” Sounds good to me! There’s nothing as soothing on a cold day as a hot cup of homemade soup. Here’s a favorite recipe from our family vaults.


2-3 cups sliced onions

2 TBS butter

4-5 cups water

1 cup white cooking wine

2 bouillon cubes

Salt, pepper to taste

Cubed French bread (day-old, crusty bread works best)

Grated Swiss cheese


Brown onions in butter. Add water, wine, bouillon, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and cover. Simmer until onions are tender, about 20-25 minutes. Put cubes of bread into individual oven-proof serving bowls and sprinkle with a little grated cheese. Pour soup into each bowl and top with a generous additional amount of grated cheese.  Place the bowls under the broiler until  cheese is brown and crispy. Serves 4-5 people.

Bon Appétit!
