Creole Onion Soup from Brennan’s
Updated: Jan 4
Here is another one from the old Brennan’s. Will it make the cut for the new menu?
1/2 cup (1 stick) Butter
1 large Onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
2 quarts Beef Stock
2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon White Pepper
Salt to taste
2 teaspoons Eggshade or Yellow Food Coloring (Optional)
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
Melt the butter in a large pot, and saute the onion until tender, about 5 minutes. Blend in the flour and cook the mixture over medium heat another 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the beef stock, Worcestershire sauce, and pepper. Adjust the seasoning with salt to taste. If desired, add the food coloring. Reduce the heat and simmer until thickened, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan, then serve.
