French Onion Soup
Soupe à l'Oignon Gratinée
A Recipe From: Ile-de-France

Skill Level: Easy
Serves: 6

Directions
In a large saucepan, heat the butter. Add the onions and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until well-browned, about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium and stir in the flour. Brown lightly, about 2 minutes, stirring. Add the beef stock, increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the brandy. Preheat the broiler. Place enough bread in each of 6 ovenproof bowls to cover the surface once the bowls are filled with soup. Ladle the soup into the bowls. Sprinkle the soup with the cheese and place under the broiler until the cheese has browned, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

Sylvaine's comments
