Recipe Preparation Level: easy
    8 cups sliced yellow onions
    6 tablespoons butter
    4 teaspoons sugar
    2 quarts chicken broth
    1/2 cup grappa (or plain brandy), or to taste
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1/2 baguette bread, sliced, toasted
    Grated Romano cheese

    Using a large pan (at least 4 quarts), cook onions, stirring often, in melted butter til tender and golden brown. Sprinkle sugar over and cook, stirring 1 minute. Add broth, cover and bring to boil. Simmer 12 minutes to blend flavors. Add grappa to soup and cook two minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper. To serve, float toast on soup and sprinkle lavishly with cheese. Garnish with a fresh herb on each serving, if you like. Makes about 9 cups.
