French Onion Soup

I love, love, love French onion soup and this low calorie version did not disappoint. It was as good as what you would get in a restaurant, just a little less cheesy. I wasn't sure if this would be enough for me for a meal but it was surprisingly filling and one bowl of this filled me right up. If you like French onion soup I highly recommend this version. Recipe from Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes.

Ingredients:
2 pounds yellow onions, sliced thin
3 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp flour
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/8 cup dry sherry
1/4 cup Cognac or brandy
1/4 cups good white wine
9 cups beef stock
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
6 slices toasted Italian bread
6 slices Alpine Lace Reduced-Fat Swiss

Directions:
In a large pot, sauté the onions with the butter, until soft and golden, about 20 minutes. Add flour, mixing well another 2-3 minutes. Add thyme, bay leaf, sherry, wine and brandy, and simmer uncovered for 10 more minutes.

Add the beef stock, salt & pepper to taste, reduce heat. Cover and simmer gently for about 20 minutes. Remove bay leaf and ladle 1-1/2 cups soup into 6 oven-proof bowls. Place bowls on a baking sheet. Place sliced toasted bread rounds into each bowl and top bread with cheese. Broil 2 to 3 minutes, until cheese melts.

Servings: 6
Calories: 295

I just bought onions enough to make this yesterday! Great minds...I think I will incorporate yours and my recipes together and see what I come up with--the "boys" in the family don't necessarily need or like the lower calorie stuff, but I DO!!

With two of these soups in the potluck blog hop I don't know what to do. lots of butter and booze in yours, but the other has cheese and skips the beef. There must be a way to combine the two. Or maybe I'll just combine both!
