Fork it up Fridays

Hi! Welcome to Fork it Up Fridays! Each Friday, I share a delicious recipe that I've tried and enjoyed. Some may be a family favorite while others may be something my sister or daughter passed on to me. Hope you enjoy!

Since it's still cold out, at least here in SE Michigan, I'm sharing a recipe for French Onion Soup. My old recipe is in my father's beautiful handwriting, but I have no idea where he got the recipe. Enjoy!

French Onion Soup
Three Servings

1 Tbs. unsalted butter
1/8 cup vegetable oil
1 3/4 pounds onions, thinly sliced
1 cup dry white wine
3 cups chicken stock or canned low-salt broth
6 - 1/2 inch-thick French bread slices (Baguette slices, toasted)
1/2 cup grated Gruyere cheese (about 2 oz)

Oddly enough, the recipe didn't come with directions. My guess would be to melt the butter, add vegetable oil and saute the onions until tender. Add the wine and the chicken stock, and simmer for 20". Spoon the soup into individual small bowls, then place the toasted bread on top the soup and add the cheese.

Hope you enjoy!
