Onion Soup

INGREDIENTS

Onion Soup

  • 1/4 C. (50 mL) Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening 
  • 6 C. (1.5 L) thinly sliced onions (about 4 medium)
  • 6 C. (1.5 L) beef broth
  • 1/2 tsp. (2 mL) hot pepper sauce, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) butter or margarine, softened
  • 6 slices (6 slices) French bread
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) grated Parmesan cheese

DIRECTIONS

  1. Melt shortening in a Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add onions and cook until tender but not brown, about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add broth and 1/4 tsp. (1 mL) hot pepper sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer while covered for 30 minutes.
  3. When ready to serve, blend butter and remaining 1/4 tsp. (1 mL) hot pepper sauce. Toast bread slices on one side under broiler. Spread un-toasted side with hot pepper sauce and butter, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Place under broiler for 1 minute or until cheese is bubbly. Pour soup into a tureen or bowls and float bread slices on top.
