Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    Very good. Lots of onions relative to broth. Port and balsamic vinegar enhanced the sweetness of the onions. Couldn't find slab bacon, so used regular; think it could be omitted. I slightly prefer the flavor of Ina's multi-booze broth, but this was delicious too. Half the recipe filled 3 of my ovenproof soup bowls. Without measuring first, I just made 2 baguette croutons per bowl, then discovered they didn't nearly cover the top, so much of the cheese melted directly on the soup - oh well.

    If I am short on the chicken stock I use stock + water and a little bit of demi-glace. Works great! Pcitures here: http://egullet.org/p1868265

    Classic onion soup recipe - absolutely perfect. I always keep inexpensive port wine from Trader Joe's on hand for this recipe. Aged gruyere can also be found at TJ.
