Why I Love This Recipe

Great onion soup that can be good for a dinner.

Ingredients You'll Need

7 medium yellow onions, sliced
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 thyme springs, leaves stripped
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup dry sherry
4 cups beef stock
2 cups chicken stock
French bread croutons/slices (Just crisp in an oven)
Gruyere cheese - 2 cups shredded or 6 slices


In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onions, bay leaf, and thyme leaves and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onions begin to turn golden brown--about 25-30 minutes

Add the sherry and cook until it is almost evaporated and onions turn brown, about 15 minutes

Add the beef and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer, and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste

Ladle the soup into the oven-proof bowls. Top with a French bread crouton and a handful (or slice) of the gruyere. Bake at 450* until cheese is bubbly and starts to turn brown, about 8-10 minutes
