Easy onion soup

This recipe came from some ancient recipe cards we have. It makes a great starter and is almost trivially easy to prepare.


(Serves 4-6)


  1. Peel and slice the onions thinly.
  2. Fry the onions in the butter until golden brown. This will take about 30 minutes.
  3. Add the stock and simmer for 30 minutes.
  4. Season and serve.


The amount of onions can be varied down to about half the amount given above. Onion soup in no way makes me a cannibal.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 5 minutes preparation, 1 hour cooking.
Precision: approximate measurement OK.
