I think I'm addicted to caramelized onions. Like unhealthily so. I could probably eat them on just about anything, but you won't judge me, right? Luckily one of my favorite winter meals is French Onion Soup where caramelized onions are the glorified center of attention. Yum! What's great about it is you can use just about any type of broth, bread and cheese and it will turn out fantastic no matter what your combination is. I prefer Muenster cheese, but I know it is often served with Provolone, Monterey Jack or Mozzarella. Like all four? Go for it! I won't tell.
My mom used to always make this growing up and eating it always brings me back to my childhood. My brother and I would play outside for hours then come inside to a nice, warm bowl of bubbling soup. Go ahead and make yourself a bowl and enjoy on a cold winter evening!
2 (10.5 oz.) cans condensed beef broth (can also use vegetable or chicken)
2 cups water
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
French bread, sliced and toasted
Sliced Provolone cheese (or any type you prefer)
Cook onions in butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally until onions are tender and begin to brown. Sprinkle with flour and mix immediately. Gradually stir in 1 cup broth. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Stir in remaining broth, water and Worcestershire sauce. Heat to boiling and then reduce heat. Simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.
Place sliced bread in the bottom of a bowl and cover with soup. Top with your favorite cheese and place under the broiler until melted and bubbly.
