How to make it

  • Heat butter and oil in large saucepan then add the onion and cook,stiriing frequently over low heat for bout 45 minutes, or until softened and golden brown. Cook the onion thoroughly so that it carmelizes.
  • add the vegetable stock, sherry and 1 cup water. Bring to boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Season to taste using the above seasoning.
  • Then slice the bread into slices or use ready made croutons...If not using croutons broil your bread using parmesean cheese...use four thick slices...
  • This is the best step...put the bread slices or croutons into serving bowl and ladel in the hot soup, sprinkle with cheese and parsley and bon apetite...serve with a great glass of wine and a platter of cheeses that are placed on top of red leaf lettuce with some walnuts and pine nuts surrounding the edge of the platter dish... and
  • take it easy while enjoying this yum soup. I think, by the fireplace is certainly will warm the soul.

    This looks like a "5" fork recipe!
    I LOVE 60'S MUSIC and John Denver was in my opinion, absolutely precious!
    I once taught a stepchild of Bob McBride who was a member with the group Lighthouse. He was a gentle giant and passed away before his time. One day I would like to create a recipe in his honour. Thanks for the memory nudge.

    My hubby loves the 60's music - and over the years I have also grown to love them. He remembers Barry McGuire singing Eve of Destruction -- good protest song and maybe we need a few more of those right now. ! ! !

    someone asked me why John Denver..I grew up during the sixties and John was part of the music...and I met him and found him to be an extraordinary man and I also love his music...This recipe is in rembrance of him...Now, PF Sloan writer of Eve Of Destruction and Secret Agent Man use to make marinara sauce in the slow cooker and I have a recipe on that, as well....
    My aka susie Any lovers of sixty music and Z4's give me a holler....

    how much sherry? the recipe just says "1/2 sherry." i'm assuming it is 1/2 cup?
