This is an original recipe for French Onion Soup that my whole family just loves. The top is melty and cheesy, and the soup is very flavorful. Using soy sauce and celery leaves to flavor a soup is something I learned from my Grandma. This recipe makes four appetizer-sized servings. I hope you try it out!

Step 1: Gather Ingredients

2 tbsp butter
2 cups onions. (The onions I used were small, so I used about 3, but it would only take 2 large onions.)
1 cup celery
4 cups beef broth (2 cubes, or 4 tsp powder.)
1 Tbsp cooking sherry
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
3 Tbsp soy sauce
dash pepper
4 slices of bread
About 1/2 cup shredded cheese, or four slices of cheese. Gruyere is my favorite, but you can use whatever cheese you like.

You will also need:
A large pot
Cutting board, knife
Measuring stuff
4 Oven safe bowls--MUST be oven safe.
An oven with a broiler. If your oven doesn't have a broiler, that's okay, just preheat it to 350 or 400 or so. 
Sounds good. Thanks for posting. I may try. Instead of bread though, I will try using two flour tortillas instead (one in the middle, one on top).
I have found that making a large batch of onion soup is much easier than trying to make a small batch. Something about having a relatively DEEP layer of onions while you're trying to brown them lets them get done to the correct consistency without getting dried out or burnt. So for smaller batches, it might help if your large pan is tall, rather than wide...<br>
Yumy yumy. Very delicious
