    Hi Ravenseyes! One of the first things I made from scratch - way back - was French Onion Soup, much the same as above. You have all the essential parts down pat, (butter, sliced onion rings, slow-carmelizing) so I KNOW this is about as good & classic as it gets! Even homemade stock! Great post!
