The real thing takes time, but it's worth it. It's the slow saute of the onions that requires the time but you can listen to satellite radio or read the lastest issue of UTNE while the onions slow cook. This is a meal in itself but sadly, this restaurant soup rarely lives up to what its originators intended: brazen with caramelized onions, real stock, and a crown of toasted sourdough bread with a trio of cheeses. If you have baby boomer parents, ask them where they hid the French onion soup bowls (beside the fondue pot probably). If you are a baby boomer, kick yourself for selling the onion soup bowls at the garage sale, and buy some more. Or, make this a communal affair. Serve the soup in an oven-proof casserole and ladle out servings at the table. Do use real stock, so easily available.
