Onion Soup, Easy Style
2 tbsp butter
32 oz. beef broth
drizzle of olive oil
4 - 6 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
Get your onion goggles on. For real. I was balling my eyes out cutting up these onions. Just ask Travis. He was crying too.
Peel and then slice your onions pretty fine. Place in a microwave safe bowl.
Add a couple pads of butter and cook in microwave on high for 5 minutes, uncovered. Stir and then cook on high for another 4 minutes or until onions are very soft. You can remove the onion goggles now, it is probably safe.
Add the beef broth and cover dish. Cook for 8 more minutes on high in microwave.
Get your cheesy toast ready now. This is the best part of onion soup, right? I like to use a crusty bread that holds up well to the liquid in the soup.
Cut bread into small rounds and top with a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of garlic salt and plenty of freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese. I used both.
Toast in toaster oven until the edges are browned and the cheese is melted and bubbling.
I think I could go for this sans the soup but I have cute soup crocks to show you so let's continue.
Carefully remove the soup from the microwave and divide into your soup bowls (make sure they are microwave safe). Top with your cheesy toast and put BACK into the microwave for one more round for 8 minutes. Then they are ready to eat. But watch out, this soup is piping hot! I suggest letting it sit for about 5 minutes or so before you dive in.
