Top-ranked recipe named "Baked French Onion Soup"
Melt butter with oil in large soup pot - add sliced onions and stir to coat ~ cover pot and cook over moderately low heat for 15 - 20 minutes - stirring occasionally until onions are tender and translucent. Uncover pot and raise heat to moderately high - stir in salt and sugar (sugar carmelizes and helps onions to brown) - cook about 30 minutes - stirring frequently until onions have turned an even deep golden brown. Lower heat to moderate - stir in flour and add a bit more butter if flour does not absorb into a paste with the onions. Cook slowly, stirring constantly for 12 minutes to brown flour lightly. Remove from heat - pour about 1 cup of warmed consomme into onion/flour mixture to blend flour and consomme - add rest of consomme, water, wine, bay leaf and sage - bring to a simmer. Simmer slowly for 30 - 40 minutes. If you are not serving right away, let cool, uncovered, then cover and refrigerate. Reheat when ready to serve - place in ovenproof soup bowls - top with a slice of toasted french bread, shredded mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese. Place under broiler to melt cheeses until bubbly. Posted to MM-Recipes Digest V5 #021 by email@example.com (Lena P Mitchell) on Jan 20, 1998

brookeambreheyde-linn 1 year agoThis soup is amazing! I used my food processor to chop the onions very fine because I had my tonsils out yesterday and can't handle anything of substance right now. I also added garlic to the onions. I will definitely make this again!

shannonodland 2 years agoI didn't have red wine so I just added more broth. It tasted just like a restaurant! I grew up in an area with some great recipes for FOS, and after I moved I missed that flavor, but now I have it again!

catgurrl 7 years agoExcellent French Onion soup recipe! If you're going to make this, don't take any shortcuts, because the secret to its wonderful flavor is in the slow caramelizing of the onions. I followed the recipe as directed, with perfect results. This one will go into my Favorites.
