I am looking for anyone's favorites.  ended up with a bunch of onions and they are not the kind that will keep well.  thought i'd make a big pot of soup and freeze some for later.

Thinly slice enough onions to fill your pot about 3/4ths full
season onions with worchester sauce pretty heavy, a lot of dried basil, some black pepper, some sweet organeo
sautee onions in butter, pull off while the are still slightly crisp
add beef stock till you cover the onions about 1", throw in a couple of bay leaves
heat and let simmer 15 minutes, season to taste (I like to add cayanne for a little kick)
Thicken with a little with corn starch mixed with a little milk or cream
pour in a wide bowl, cover with a couple of slices of toasted dark Rye bread, and lots of Jack or Pepperjack cheese. Melt the cheese under your broiler

Serve with skunky beer

America's test kitchen has the original recipe but it takes time. You have to caramelize the onions forever 'til there's almost nothing left. It's a lot of work/time but it makes the best soup I've tried.

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

I have seen frozen raw onions on youtube once.   You can batter then and then freeze for rings later also.
