Soupe a l'oignon (onion soup)

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
9 \N Large, firm onions
½ cup Butter
1 quart Water
½ cup White dinner wine ((Note: NOT sweet))
2 tablespoons Beef stock base
¼ teaspoon Powdered mushrooms ((Note: We never use this))

Parmesan cheese ((Note: We use mozzarella or Swiss)) Peel onions; slice into thin rings (should be about 2 quarts). Saute onions in butter in a large heavy soup kettle. When golden but not browned add water, wine, beef stock base and powdered mushrooms.

Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Turn into 8 small, heavy soup bowls; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese to serve. (If bowls are heavy and you wish to, soup may be run under the broiler to brown cheese a little before serving.)

Makes 8 small servings.

NOTE: We always put a thick slice of French bread on top of soup, then the cheese (mozzarella or Swiss, generously) on top of that, and brown under broiler.
