21 - French Onion Soup Anyone?

She said that when she turned 21 she would buy her first bottle of wine, not to drink, but rather to make authentic French Onion Soup, so sweetheart, enjoy your day tomorrow.  We we wish we could share it with you and enjoy some yummy soup.

Happy Birthday from all of us!

1) In a large stockpot on medium-high heat, saute the onions with the butter and bay leaf for 20 minutes, until the onions turn a rich golden brown color.
2) Deglaze the pan with the sherry and brandy and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Add the white wine and simmer uncovered for 15 more minutes.

3) Add the beef and veal stocks plus salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered for 20 minutes. Remove the bay leaf, taste for salt and pepper, and serve hot with grated Parmesan.
