Soupin up the Tailgates for Bowl Season!

It's football season and we are creeping into college bowl season and NFL playoffs. Cold weather and the best football is ahead!  Now is a good time to whip up a delicious, warm soup for your tailgate party. The following is a recipe by my mother Theresa Enyeart. It is a recipe for an Onion and Cheese Soup and one of my personal faves!  As always, we try to incorporate a few estate sale or auction finds in the pics. Check out the vintage Penn State football program and Big Ten pennant!

What you will need:
6 to 7 large Onions (peeled and thinly sliced) 
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 stick of butter
2 T of brown sugar
1 tsp. basil
1tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
5 T  all purpose flour
3 cups Shredded sharp cheese
64 oz. Chicken Broth

Let's Get Started! 

In a heavy 4 qt. saucepan, cook onions and garlic slowly. Cook until onions are lightly brown. Add butter. Stir until combined. Add salt, pepper, brown sugar, basil, thyme & flour. Stir. Take onions off the heat and add chicken broth. Allow to cook for 20 minutes on low heat. Once 20 mins is up, then add 2 cups of sharp cheese. Simmer and serve with your favorite sandwich. This is sure to warm up even the coldest enemies of the Nittany Lions!
