Well, apparently I bought the non-browning onions for this recipe. I cooked them on the lowest setting on my stove for 1 hour - no colour. OK, the recipe said 1 hour or more, so I nudged the heat up a little and another 35 minutes passed - no colour. So, now the husband is home and the in laws are on their way over and I have a pot of ghostly onions. Patience lost at this point, I decided to crank up the heat and carry on!
As far as the cheesy top, I did it separately and served on top of the soup. Hopefully, reading other posts I can find the magic trick to brown onions successfully.
Happy French Friday!
