Buttery Onion Soup Recipe

Buttery Onion Soup Recipe

Several years back, I needed ways to use up 25 lbs. of sweet onions—and this recipe's one I came up with. I like making it for guests. Sometimes, however, I'll fix a half recipe just for me! My husband and I raise sheep and cattle 8 miles from the Canadian border. We have two children, 18 and 16.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups thinly sliced onions
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1-1/2 to 2 cups (6 to 8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Croutons, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, cook onions in butter over low heat until tender and transparent, about 20 minutes.
  • 2. Stir in flour. Gradually add broth and milk; cook and stir over medium heat until bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute longer; reduce heat to low. Add mozzarella cheese and stir constantly until melted (do not boil). Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with croutons if desired. Yield: 6 servings.

"I used only 1/4 cup butter to limit calories and fat. It tasted great! Next time I might try popstardiva's variations."

"This soup is tasty but it was a little bland. I added chopped celery to the onions and 1 tsp of dill along with salt and pepper and it was delicious"

"Like the previous reviewer I use beef broth instead of chicken broth, but otherwise I follow the recipe. My DH says he could live on this soup!"
