French Onion Soup

Rich, beautiful caramelized onions, and plenty of them, make this soup a classic. I made it today to serve for New Year's Day. I put it in a big crock pot, with a ladle; sourdough toasts and slices of Gruyere, Mozzarella and beautiful, shredded Parmesano Reggiano will be nearby. Guests build their own soup bowls and the broiler is on and ready to melt the cheeses on the soup bowls until they are bubbly and brown. I serve a big Salad with all the dressing choices and more Sourdough Bread and Butter. Both red and white wine go well with this soup. When us girls are enjoying this soup and bread (and lots of wine); we almost enjoy football!
