French Onion Soup

A great soup to warm up to
 on a frosty winter's day.

3 red Onions and
1 white Onion, sliced thinly.
1 tsp. minced garlic or
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
1/4 cup butter
2 bay leaves
1/2 tsp. thyme
2 tbsp. flour
1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
(1/2 cup red wine-optional)
3-4 cups beef broth,
Pepper to taste
1 baguette bread
1 cup grated cheese,
gruyere or swiss.

In a large skillet, melt the butter 
Add sliced onions and bay leaves, garlic and saute
 about 15-20 mins. until onions are caramelized.

Add the flour, thyme, balsamic vinegar, (optional red wine)
and saute for 3 mins.

Add the broth, pepper, (salt optional)
 and cook (covered) for an additional 15mins.

 Slice the baguette in 1 inch slices.
 (I used garlic baguette)

Toast the baquettes in the oven under the broiler

Portion the soup in 5 oven proof bowls.

Place 2 toasted slices of the baguettes on top of the soup.

Cover with your favorite cheese.
 I used mozzarella or parmesan 
(Gruyere or Swiss are the
traditional cheese used)

Place under the broiler until cheese is melted.
