French Onion Soup
3 cups sliced onions
1/4 cup butter
2 cups beef stock (or 2 cups water and 2 tablespoons beef soup base)
2 cups chicken stock (or 2 cups water and 2 tablespoons chicken soup base)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 recipe Parmesan Toast Cubes (see below)
In a medium saucepan, saute sliced onions in melted butter until golden brown. Add beef stock, chicken stock, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 30 minutes. Ladle into bowls and top with Parmesan Toast Cubes just before serving. Makes 4 servings.
Parmesan Toast Cubes
1 loaf French bread
Butter, room temperature
Parmesan cheese, grated
Slice French bread into thick slices and place on a large baking sheet. Spread each slice with enough softened butter to cover each slice. Sprinkle liberally with Parmesan cheese. Place slices under broiler and toast until light brown. Remove and cut into large cubes.
Notes: Simple and very tasty! The photo in our cook book shows the toast in strips or slices, so we did not cube ours.
