A home made onion soup that takes the chill away!
1 large vidalia onion sliced/or roughly chopped
Some peppercorns
Black pepper
Kosher salt
A pkg. of beef or chicken stock
Slices of Swiss cheese
Bread croutons
Some white wine

In a deep pan saute the onion with a pinch of salt in olive oil and butter until carmelized; add some peppercorns, black pepper, then chicken or beef stock. Add the wine and let simmer for 2-3 minutes and taste to correct seasoning.

Prepare the crock onion soup bowl...... toast a thick slice of french bread/or toasted croutons and place it at the bottom of the crock soup bowl;sprinkle a tablespoon of parmessan cheese. Ladle the onion soup to the bowl and line the top with cheese slices and put in the oven toaster to brown and melt the cheese/or put in the microwave for a few seconds until the cheese melts.
Serve with a sandwich or salad. It's gooey, yummy, and guaranteed to scare the chill away!
