We're all big fans of French onion soup, but I've read the recipes - hours of cooking time and pounds of sliced onions. I wasn't sure my eyes could handle that kind of torture. I wanted to thank Linda for her patience with my obsession though, so I borrowed her Taste of Home magazine and took on their Classic French Onion Soup recipe.
As suspected, the recipe starts with lots of onions. Linda helped for about four onions, but then she split. I stuck it out, breaking when my eyes blurred. Unwilling to handle the smelly roots for longer than necessary, I plugged in my food processor and made some noise (note: when slicing onions in the food processor make sure you first remove the chopping blade).
