French Onion Soup
- 4 large onions
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 8 cups reduced-sodium beef broth
- Salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 8 1-inch-thick French bread slices
- 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 400°F. For soup, slice onions using Ultimate Mandoline fitted with v-shaped thick slicing blade. Melt butter over medium heat in Dutch (6-qt.) Oven; add onions and sugar. Cook and stir 15-18 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are tender and golden brown. Stir in flour and salt. Gradually add beef broth; bring to boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Add salt and black pepper to taste. Cover; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
For croutons, place bread slices on Large Round Stone with Handles; bake 5 minutes or until lightly toasted. Grate cheese using Ultimate Mandoline fitted with grating blade. Turn bread slices over; sprinkle with cheese. Continue baking 5-8 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned and melted.
Ladle soup into bowls; top with croutons.
