A really delicious, simple onion soup recipe that is good any time of the year.
In a large soup pot, melt the butter with the oil. Add the onions and cook until translucent. Add the sugar and flour, and cook for 1 minute. Add beef broth, water, burgundy, port, salt and pepper. Simmer for 2 hours.
Slice the baguette and toast. Preheat the broiler. To serve, pour the onion soup into crocks. Place a piece of baguette on top. Cover bread with your choice of cheese. Place on a baking tray and then place it in the oven and broil until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Note: If you prefer not to use the port or burgundy, just add more beef broth or water to equal the amount of port and burgundy used in the recipe.
