French Onion Soup
|Butter/Margarine||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Sliced onion||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Bouillon/21 ounce cans beef bouillon diluted / make with beef soup base and water||5 Cup (80 tbs)|
|Worcestershire sauce||To Taste|

Heat butter in a large, heavy saucepan; add onions. Stir and simmer on medium heat until onions are soft and richly browned (takes about 45 minutes). Add bouillon. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour the hot soup into earthenware bowls or soup plates. Float a slice of toasted French bread on top, and sprinkle with grated cheese. If desired, put soup bowls on a shallow baking pan and place under the broiler until cheese melts a bit. Or sprinkle cheese on toast and broil on cookie sheet until cheese is golden before placing on soup.
