French Onion Soup

I just this soup yesterday. I love it! And the best part of it is that my house smells like onions for the night!!

French Onion Soup
(Pampered Chef)

4 large onions
¼ cup butter or margarine
2 teaspoons sugar
¼ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
8 cups reduced-sodium beef broth
Salt and ground black pepper to taste

8 1-inch-thick French bread slices
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400°F.

For soup:
Slice onions. Melt butter over medium heat; add onions and sugar. Cook and stir 15-18 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are tender and golden brown. Stir in flour and salt. Gradually add beef broth; bring to boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Add salt and black pepper to taste. Cover; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.

Pour into soup bowls, put French bread on top, sprinkle (I use much more than a sprinkle) on cheese and broil until cheese is melted.

Sharon's Meatloaf

I hate meatloaf. Well, until I ate my mother-in-law's. It's pretty good. In fact, it's the only meatloaf I'll eat. I just made it the other day, and it was good.

Sharon's Meatloaf

2 lbs. Hamburger
1 package of Mrs. Cubbison’s bread stuffing
1 egg
½ cup chopped celery
Small onion, chopped

Mix all ingredients together until the loaf is firm. Shape and place into a pan. Bake at 350 for 1-1½ hours.
