Basic Onion Soup
I love a good onion soup!
  1. 6 large onions
  2. 6 tablespoons olive oil
  3. 6 cups water or stock of choice
  4. 4 bouillon cubes (if soup stock is not used)
  5. 6 bread slices, toasted
  6. salt and pepper to taste
  7. grated gruyere cheese
  1. Cut the onion into thin slices. Pour the oil into he soup pot and cook the onions slowly until they turn brown. Stir continually. Add the water and bouillon cubes. Bring the water to a boil and boil for 5 minutes, and simmer for 10 more. Add the salt and pepper. Stir well.
  2. Pour the soup into oven-proof soup bowls. Add a slice of toasted bread on top, cover the entire top of the bowls with grated cheese, and carefully place the bowls into a preheated oven (350) for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve the soup with the cheese begins to bubble.
