Onion Soup

A very simple slightly cheating supper.

One red onion, one white onion, sliced.
Butter
Chicken stock
Salt & pepper

I totally cheated on this one and bought fresh stock from the supermarket. I feel appropriately ashamed, as any cookery blogger should.

I fried the onion over a very low heat for forever (read: one hour) until they were squishingly soft and light brown. Mixed in about a tablespoon of flour then added the stock, heated and tasted. It was bland. I added salt and lots of pepper. Too much pepper, as it turns out. Less pepper next time.

Served in bowls with french bread for dipping. Satisfactory, but could be more exciting with the use of cheese, some manner of alcohol (madeira?), a drop of beer, or some proper home-made stock.

Followed by leftover Steak Pudding reheated in the oven, which was still tasty.

    I bet some mushed roasted garlic would be nice, too.

    I like to use beef stock for this. The roasted garlic sounds pretty good too.

    Is that your entry for “French Onion Soup”, or just an onion soup you made for dinner? Cause that’s not really a complete french onion soup. Just wondering!🙂

    Lynne – nope, that wasn’t a French Onion Soup as you so cleverly observed. It was just onion soup. All “official” entries will have a number next to them.
