French Onion Soup – From “Fix, Freeze, Feast,” Storey Publishing

10 pounds onions, peeled and cut in half
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons beef bouillon granules
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon minced garlic (about 9 cloves)
1 tablespoon black pepper
5 cups shredded Swiss or Gouda cheese (about 1- 1/4 pounds)
20 small slices French bread, toasted
10 one-gallon freezer bags, label 5
5 sandwich bags
4 cups boiling water (on hand for cooking each batch of soup)
Place onion halves cut side down and slice into 1/2 -inch stripes.

Heat oil and butter in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add onions and salt. Cook, stirring frequently, for 1 hour. Reduce heat if onions begin to brown. Add bouillon, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and pepper; cook, stirring, 10 minutes longer. Cool.

Divide cooled onion mixture among the unlabeled 1-gallon freezer bags. Seal bags.

Into each of the sandwich bags, measure 1 cup cheese. Seal bags.

Into each of the five labeled 1-gallon freezer bags, place one bag of onion mixture, one bag of cheese and 4 slices of French bread. Seal and freeze.

To cook one batch of soup:

Completely thaw one set of ingredients in the refrigerator. Preheat the oven broiler. Place four ovenproof bowls on a rimmed baking sheet and divide onion mixture among them. Add 1 cup boiling water to each bowl. Top each soup a slice of French bread. Divide the cheese evenly over the bread slices. Broil just until cheese melts and browns. Take care when serving the soup: the bowls will be very hot.

  1. I love French Onion soup – this looks like a good one!

  2. Oh, French Onion soup, that sounds excellent!

    Horsey Grammy’s Lasagna

    24 Lasagna noodles
    1 lb Hot Itailian sausage
    1 lb ground sirloin
    1 onion chopped
    2 or 3 cloves minced garlic
    1 tsp. oregano
    1 tsp. sweet basil
    1/2 tsp. onion powder
    1/2 tsp. garlic salt/powder
    1 l24 oz. tub of cottage chees
    1 lb. tub ricotta cheese
    2 bricks of monzrella cheese
    2 to 3 jars of your favorite pasta sauce
    (mine is Morgias)

    Cook lasagna noodes according to pkg. directions. Next heat a skillet with approx.2 tsp olive oil, place Italian sausage into pan and cook until about half done; add ground sirloin to same pan and cook both until no longer pink,set aside. Now grate the monzrella once grated, add ricotta, and cottage cheese all together (I add another good shake of onion powder and garlic powder to the cheese. Next grease the biggest cassrole pan you own or two smaller ones and add about 3 TBLS. of pasta sauce to bottom of pan/s. place one layer of lasagna noodles over the sauce, then add aprox. 1/2 cup of meats on top of noodles, then a layer of cheeseand top off with 1 1/2 cups of sauce. Repeat this method until all the ingredients are used up. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 1 hour or until bubbly and cheese on top is browned slightly. If you have a seal a meal, once the lasagna has cooled about an hour or so cut into portions that will better serve your family ; seal and freeze. This is excellent for camping trips as you can place the lasagna in a cast Iron skillet with a little water in the bottom on your grill grate and heat thru for a warm hearty meal.

  7. go to – it’s completely menu driven. Create your meez, dress it, animate it, (It can take a bit of time as the choices are only 9 to a page, but it goes quickly if you know what you’re looking for) click to export your meez code, click to save it to clip board, CTRL V to drop the code into the spot you want it . I’m not familiar with wordpress, but I’m told it’s easy to insert code. Hope this helps.
