French Onion Soup

Did you know that this classic soup in its original form dates back to the roman times?! the classic soup experienced a renaissance of sorts thanks to french cuisine. The trick here is to chop the onions really fine. Cheese thickens the broth while mustard imparts a heady, pungent flavour. 
French onion soup is always served by pouring ladles of soup over a cheese crouton placed in a bowl. This soup is delectable and worth trying. 

1 small Onion chopped
Butter 2 oz
Chicken stock 4 cups
Bread slices 4
Cheddar cheese 4 tbsp grated
Salt ½ tsp
White pepper ½ tsp
Sugar 1 tbsp
Flour 2 tbsp

Heat butter and fry onions till dark brown. Add in flour and sugar till it forms a caramel mixture. Add in chicken stock and seasoning, stir till the mixture thickens. Cut the bread slices with a round cutter and apply grated cheese lavishly on it.
Pour soup in an oven proof bowl. Place the bread slices covered with cheese separately on a dish and grill for 5 min. in the oven till the cheese melts. Sprinkle chopped parsley before serving.
