French Onion Soup...

6 large yellow onions, sliced
4 Tbs sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
12 cups beef broth
2 Tbs Worcestershire
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1-2 Tb Sherry (optional, but I strongly recommend a trip to your liquor store for it)

In a large non-stick skillet melt the butter and add the onions and sugar. Saute on medium heat until the onions are very tender and are turning golden brown - be patient, this can take an hour or so. Watch that the onions don't burn by stirring them often.

Transfer onion mixture into a large pot. Add he broth and bring to a slow boil. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add the Worcestershire, celery salt, garlic powder, and pepper - simmer for 20 minutes. Add the sherry towards the end of the 20 minutes.

  1. This sounds sooooo yummy!! Actually, however, it isn't vegetarian because of the beef broth.
