A soup recipe because its a miserable November day here in NY.

Onion Soup
Concourse Steakhouse -- Contemporary Resort

10 ounces beef consommé
5 each sweet onions
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups white wine
10 ounces chicken broth
10 ounces apple cider may be replaced by chicken stock
1/2 loaf country bread
kosher salt to taste
white pepper to taste
1/2 cup grated gruyere cheese
6 each sliced provolone
6 oz scallions
5 each spanish onions

Trim ends off each onion. Then slice from end to end. Remove peel and finely slice into half moon shapes. Set electric skillet to 300 degrees and add butter. Once butter is melted add a layer of onions and sprinkle with salt Repeat layering of onions and salt until all onions are in skillet. Do not stir. Leave the onions in the pot for 15-20 minutes. (Allow the onions to sweat down.) Stir occasionally until the onions are golden brown and reduce to approximately 2 cups.

This process will take about 45 min to an hour. Add enough wine to cover the onions and turn heat to high reducing the wine to a syrup consistency. Add consommé, chicken stock and the optional apple cider. Reduce heat and simmer for about 15-20 min. Add the scallions chopped. Cut the bread into fine slices and toast them.

Place the soup in 6 single oven proof bowls, top with crouton, provolone cheese and parmesan grated. Place in preheated oven 375 degrees. Bake until cheese has melted and is brown.
Ready to serve.

An Herb butter is just butter that has been softened & chopped fresh herbs are stirred thru and then it is chilled again. The types of herbs used usually depend on the ethnicity of the dish. What was it closest too...maybe we can come up with a blend. How about the taste...any guess on what was used?
What was it called maybe we can find it in the archives.

Hey TigsMom!!! I Knew I could count on you for a good answer!!! I know that herb butter is just butter with herbs put into it. Problem is which ones!! I Am not that familiar with herbs to be able to differentiate one from the other while I Am chowing down. And that day I was STARVING so it was literally Chowing down!!! My wonderful cousin, Laura,who is a trained chef, said she would probably use a garlic and parsley type of mix, but I think there was more to it than that. The recipe actually says specifically herb butter, but doesnt provide the ingredients for it!!! I didnt notice it until I was already back in NYC!!!! I didnt think that was very funny, but Im sure Mom over at the 50's Prime Time did!!! If any one is heading over there anytime soon, please try to shake them down for the ingredients!! Thanks!!

Garlic & parsley is a good start. Maybe some basil? It does have tomatoes in it. Tarragon is also good with seafood. Maybe experiment with small amounts & see which tastes the most like the original.

Also any thoughts on how many portions this would make?? It seems like quite a bit of pasta to me!!! Also I agreed with my friend Richie, that the amount of the shrimp, olives and artichokes should be increased a little on all three!!! Just our humble opinion!!! Belle

Since restaurant portions tend to be larger than normal I would say 8-10 servings.

There are 20-30 large shrimp/pound...40-60 shrimp in this recipe.
Most servings are of 5 or 6 shrimp/serving.
Three pounds of pasta normally feeds 12 people, but again restaurants use larger portions as a filler.

Can't say on the veggies...they really are just an accent for flavor, increasing them is up to your taste. I I personally would leave out the artichoke. Increasing the shrimp is totally up to you also...I could eat a pound of shrimp myself.

I love this thread. :sohappy:
From the old Village Restaurant: (from the 1986 edition of Cooking with Mickey Around the World: Walt Disney World's Most Requested Recipes. )

Mushroom and Barley Soup
(Yield: 9 cups)

1/2 cup pearl barley 2 quarts chicken broth
1 clove garlic, minced 3/4 pound mushrooms, chopped (about 4 cups)
1/2 cup finely chopped onion Salt and white pepper to taste
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
4 tablespoons butter

Soak barley in water overnight.
Sauté garlic, onion and celery in butter until tender. Drain barley and add to vegetables. Sauté 10 minutes longer until barley becomes thick.
Add chicken broth and mushrooms and simmer, covered, until barley is tender, about 1 hour. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

**I've never soaked barley before, its not really like beans. They also have "instant" barley (quick cooking).
