Casey's French Onion Soup

Suzanne Marzano

My grandson Casey likes what he calls french onion soup, but in reality is just onion soup. I came up with this recipe because he just wanted the basic soup with no frills. Now this has become a family staple. The trick is the caramelzation of the onions, long and slow which brings out the flavor. Hence the name Casey's French Onion Soup

Prep:

1 Hr

Cook:

4 Hr

Method:

Slow Cooker Crock Pot

Ingredients

4 c
mix of sweet and yellow onions
3 Tbsp
butter
2 Tbsp
flour
1/2 tsp
sugar
4 c
beef broth
4 slice
dried or toasted french bread
4 slice
smokey provolone or mozzarella cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Slice the onions thinly, the thinner the better.
2
Melt butter in a large pot, add onions.
3
Cook onions slowly over low heat, stirring often for 45 min. to an hour. The onions should be golden brown, and well caramelized and this takes time, don't hurry.
4
Stir in the sugar and flour, and cook for 3 - 4 min. You want to get rid of the flour taste
5
Add the beef broth ( I use the au jus base from GFS but any beef broth will do.
6
Add salt and pepper to taste.
7
This step is optional. I put soup into a 2 qt. crockpot (unless I double recipe then I use a 4 qt.) and let simmer on low for 3 - 4 hrs.
8
Ladle out soup into bowls and then top with cheese. I use torch and melt the cheese but you can also place under broiler but keep a watch on it or cheese melts to fast.
9
Soup can also be served without bread or cheese. Just as Casey likes it.
