Creamy French Onion Soup

INGREDIENTS

Soup
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 3 cups of onions, diced**
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1 1/2 cubes of chicken (or vegetable) stock or equivalent
  • 1 3/4 cups of milk
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1 1/2 Suisse cheese (or any cheese really if you need to get rid of your fridge content)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Croutons
  • 1 cup of bread, cut in cubes (about 1/2 inch)
  • 3 tablespoons of butter (Garlic butter for extra yum factor), melted

METHOD

Croutons

-Preheat oven at 350°F (180°C)

-Add butter on all sides of the bread cubes. Don’t soak them in the butter, use a cooking brush.

-Cook for 7 minutes on each side.

Soup

-In a large pot, melt the butter at medium heat and cook onions until tender (around 7 minutes).  Add water and stock and boil the whole mixture by bringing the temperature up.  Cover
and lower heat to maintain a low simmer. Leave it for about 15 minutes.

-In a bowl, add flour to milk while whisking the whole time. Add it to the onion mix and bring it back to a simmer until the constancy thickens. Add half of the cheese to the soup, mix until you have a good blend.

-Set the oven to broil.

-Put soup in serving bowls fit to go in the oven (4 should be enough). Add croutons and top with the rest of the cheese.

-Put in the over for a few minutes, until cheese has melted

Now put on a movie (preferably a scary one), pour yourself aGLASS of wine and ENJOY!
