French Onion Soup
1/4 cup olive oil
8 large yellow onions -- sliced thin
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
8 cups water
8 teaspoons granulated beef or vegetable bouillon or 8 bouillon cubes
1 cup cooking sherry

In a large pan, saute the onions in the olive oil, over medium-high heat. Continue cooking until the onions are slightly caramelized. Add the flour, salt, ground pepper, and Dijon mustard. Stir until blended and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Place the onions in the crockpot.

Add the water, bouillon, and cooking sherry to the crockpot. Cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. Serve with a generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese on top. Don't forget to give bread bowls a try, which can be used with any kind of hearty soup.
