Definitely a dish for colder days - feel free to safely melt some cheese on top and add a large slice of French bread on the side.

  • 4 large yellow onions, sliced
  • 6 tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 quarts reduced sodium chicken broth
  • ½ cup brandy (optional)
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Melt butter in large saucepan that holds at least 4 quarts.
  2. Add onions; cook over medium heat until tender and golden (approx. 12 minutes). Stir often.
  3. Add sugar and cook, stirring for 1 minute.
  4. Add broth; cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 12 minutes.
  5. If desired, add brandy; cook 2 minutes longer.
  6. Season with salt and pepper.
