Onion Soup. No. 1


  • 12 large Spanish onions
  • good butter
  • 2 quarts of boiling water, or weak veal broth
  • pepper
  • salt
  • crumbs of bread


Take the onions, slice and fry them in good butter. Let them be done very brown, but not to burn, which they are apt to do when they are fried. Put to them the boiling water or veal broth; pepper and salt to your taste. Let them stew till they are quite tender and almost dissolved; then add crumbs of bread made crisp, sufficient to make it of a proper thickness. Serve hot.
