French Onion Soup

I made this French Onion Soup yesterday. It was pretty good. I know what I will do next time to make it a 5-star recipe. The sherry seemed to overpower the soup and gave it too much sweetness. So, I put a bit of red wine vinegar in it to take away the sweetness and that really helped. The beef broth I used was Trader Joe's organic beef broth. I wouldn't skimp on the broth. The onions really must be carmelized for the best flavor. I toasted thick slices of Trader Joe's French baguettes and put Trader Joe's "Quattro Formaggio" on top. Quattro Formaggio is a cheese blend of Parmesan, Asiago, Fontina, and mild Provolone which was a wonderful blend of cheeses to compliment the French onion soup.

One question - did the kids eat it?

*shudders at the memory of the first and LAST time I had French Onion soup - my bro and I stayed at the table for over an hour staring at the cold glutinous horrible nastiness before we were forced to eat it - and avoid having it for breakfast the next day.

Yum! I love FOS, but the Dearest has onion hate going on so I never get to eat FOS unless we are out at a restaurant. LOL But I do love good FOS!
