My family loves French Onion soup and I came up with this recipe to feed a crowd in the winter. This makes a big pot so you can cut it down to fit your family or make it all and freeze it for later.


3# onion
4 cloves of fresh garlic (diced)
1 stick of butter
1/4 cup of olive oil
4 - 14.5 cans of beef stock
2 packages of powdered beef gray mix
2 cups of water
1/2 cup dry red wine
croutons (any flavor)
Mozzarella cheese (sliced or shredded)
Original French's dried onions


In large skillet add butter and olive oil, heat on medium til butter is melted. Cut peeled onions into rings and place in skillet with butter and oil. Chop garlic and add to skillet. Cook until tender, add wine and simmer. In stock pot add beef stock, gravy mix and water. Add onion mixture to stock pot and simmer 1/2 hour. In soup bowls place soup, add croutons to top, then add a nice amount of cheese. Melt cheese under broiler til nice and gooie, garnish with French's dried onions. Enjoy.
