French Onion Soup
4 cups beef or vegetable broth
1 large yellow onion, diced
1/2 stick butter or margerine
1 tablespoon dry onion soup mix (found in spice aisle at grocer)
2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
4 thick slices French Bread loaf French bread
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
In a large, microwave-safe bowl, combine the butter and the onions. Microwave on high for 4 to 5 minutes, removing every minute to stir. Onions should be starting to soften now; if they are not, return to microwave for a minute at a time, until they are softened in the butter.
When onions have softened, add the beef broth, onion soup mix and worcestershire sauce to the onions. Return to the microwave, and microwave on high for 7 to 10 minutes, until soup is hot and bubbly all the way through. Remove from microwave, and place into 4 individual sized serving bowls.
Toast the 4 slices of french bread (if they are too thick for your toaster, use your oven). Place one slice of bread on top of each soup, and sprinkle the mozzarella cheese evenly over each bowl. Return each bowl to the microwave for about 1 minute each, until the cheese is melted.
