Second chance soup

I've always thought French Onion Soup sounded great. I love the French. I love carmelized onions. And I love soup. Perfect.

But the first time I tried it a few years ago at a deli, it was not what I was expecting. Don't know what I was expecting, but the strong flavor bowled me over. Ever since then, I've been cautious of the myserious brown soup.

Then I saw pioneer woman's step by step recipe, and it looked so good. But everything does when Ree makes it. I wouldn't have thought the ingredients would be so few and so familiar. In fact, all things I already had: onions, stock, butter, garlic, worcestershire, bread, cheese (I left out the wine becuase I didn't have any).

So I tried it last night, and it was a success! I guess my taste buds have changed, because I thought it was delish. Strong for sure, but very flavorful. I ate the bread on the side instead of its traditional place atop the soup, but I'm weird about soggy bread.

You should make this! Easy, affordable, and great for the last few cold nights ahead.

Sorry no photos of my own version. I love to cook, and I love to take pictures, but I just don't love doing them at the same time. It's very stressful. I meant to get a shot of the finished product, but I was so hungry I forgot. I'll do better next time!

This was even better for lunch the day after! Flavor developed and all that good stuff.
