-Not merely sweated or sauted onions, but rather a nice golden brown onion slivers
that have a bit of gooeyness, sweetness, and intensity of flavor due to converting the natural
starches within the Onion to nice Caramel overtones.
-Twice as much Onion as a regular recipe. I really love the onions and can't get enough of it.
-Piece of stale/Toasted bread to go on top of the French onion Soup. (Croutons)
-Time to simmer in all the flavors.
The recipe that i have been really successful with is:
- 10 lbs Yellow Onions, unpeeled
- 1/2 cup Real, unsalted butter (1 stick)
- 1 1/2teaspoons black pepper, freshly ground
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- 3 sprigs of thyme
- 3-14 oz cans of beef broth, divided (recommended Swanson's)
- 3-14 oz can of chicken broth
- 1.5 cup dry white wine (optional-I used Chardonnay. Sherry will do fine also)
- 1/2 cupall-purpose flour (Optional)
- 3 teaspoons Kosher salt (more to adjust for preference)
- French baguette or Croutons
- Swiss, Mozzarella, or Gruyere Cheese.
will do (and if your not 21 yet, white grape juice will do fine). Overall, i would recommend
users to cook with Yellow onions as A) they are more available and B) May not be as
sweet, but than again we don't want to eat candy soup do we?
