Cathy Harris' Easy French Onion Soup

Ingredients

  • 2kg brown onions
  • 3 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon plain flour
  • 1 litre beef stock
  • thyme
  • parsley
  • Baguette
  • garlic
  • Gruyere cheese

Method

  1. Slice brown onions, gently brown in a fry pan with olive oil and butter mixture, saute for at least half an hour or until really soft. (optional, when soft add 3 teaspoons of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of plain flour for a sweeter thicker soup).
  2. Add beef stock and bring to boil, add the odd fresh herb for that professional touch - thyme and parsley - I do this early and let it sit
  3. Before serving - warm soup, slice a baguette into diagonal slices, brown on one side, rub some garlic onto uncooked side, place on top oft he soup in individual bowls (or if making for a big family meal use a heavy casserole dish)
  4. Coarsely grate Gruyere Cheese to the top of the bread.
  5. Put under grill till cheese is melting and brown and bubbling on top.
