French Onion Beef Tenderloin.

Festive eating at this time of year should not be restricted to holiday repasts.

Simple yet special dinners with the immediate family or with a couple of friends call for recipes like this. We took the comforting flavors of French onion soup and turned them into an easy bistro-style steak dinner.

Tender filet mignon gets smothered with sweet, caramelized onions and topped by a crispy, Swiss cheese-covered crostino.

To double this recipe, use two large skillets, and prepare one 4-serving recipe in each.

Serve with green beans and mashed potatoes with buttermilk and chives.
