    Karen's Krazy Kitchen's Note:

    I love how this simple dish scents the whole house when cooking. Sometimes I add 2 tbs. of Port or Sherry as a special treat. Note: You will need some cheese cloth or a large tea ball strainer to make this recipe.

    Serves: 6



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Melt the butter with the olive oil over low heat in a deep heavy bottomed pan.
    2. 2
      Add onions and cook very slowly for about an hour, until extremely soft, stirring occasionally. You want the onions to melt into the oils, but not brown.
    3. 3
      Tie up the herbs and garlic, except for the bay leaf, in the cheese cloth. Or, pull the leaves off the rosemary and put in a tea ball strainer with the smashed garlic. Place the rest of the herbs across the strainer and clamp them down.
    4. 4
      Add the herb and garlic mixture and bay leaf to the cooked onions.
    5. 5
      Pour the stock over the onions and herbs.
    6. 6
      Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    7. 7
      Cover and simmer for 45 minutes.
    8. 8
      Discard the herbs and bay leaf.
    9. 9
      Line either a large serving bowl or individual bowls with slices of bread.
    10. 10
      Spoon on the soup. Sprinkle with the cheese.

      This soup was good. It's a recipe that takes a little more prep and cooking than I usually like, but it was good. Next time I will double the recipe since as a main serving this only made 3 for us. I used veggie broth in place of the chicken broth and included the bay leaf in the cheese cloth pouch. We did not think it needed cheese and the soup was a little sweeter than I anticipated (this was a good thing). Also, instead of the 1 1/2 pints, or 3 cups, I had to add an additional 2 cups, and really, could have added even more as it was very heavy on the onions in ratio to broth. Very good though and one I'll make again. Thanks for posting.
