  • Preparation Time: 20
  • 4 Large yellow onions sliced
  • 6 Tablespoon margarine
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 8 Chicken bouillon cubes and 2 quarts water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 Baguette French bread
  • Romano cheese, grated
  1. Melt margarine in a saucepan that holds at least 4 quarts. Add diced onions and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes, or until tender, stirring often. Add sugar and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Add bouillon cubes and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 12 minutes. Season soup with salt and pepper to taste. Place in serving bowls with a toasted slice of the baguette and top with cheese.
