Here is one of my favorite recipes...

made it numerous times...
Five Onion Soup

1/4 cup butter
1 leek chopped, white part only
1 yellow onion chopped
1 red onion chopped
2 shallots chopped
2 celery stalks chopped
1 garlic clove chopped
1/2 cup dry sherry
4 cups chicken stock
1 (12 oz) russet potato, peeled, cut into 1" pieces
Melt the butter in heavy Dutch oven over medium heat. Add next 7 ingredients and sauté until translucent (6-10 minutes). Add sherry, simmer until liquid evaporates (about 3 minutes). Add 4 cups chicken stock and potato. Simmer 20 minutes, until potato is very tender. Lightly pureé soup in blender or food processor in small batches. Season with salt and pepper. Bring back to simmer. Thin with more stock if desired. Serve with croutons.
If you like you can heat the broiler and take some small crusty toasted bread slices, top with cheese, broil until cheese melts and top each soup bowl with on.
