Caramelize the Onions: Cut onions into thick slices. Heat the butter and olive oil then add onions and sweat them until they become translucent. When the onions achieve a blonde color they are the perfect texture for French Onion Soup.
Prep the Soup: Once onions have cooked, add beef broth, thyme, and bay leaf. Bring soup to a boil, and then reduce heat. Partially cover with a lid and simmer.
Top with Bread and Cheese: Fill each bowl with the soup and then top with slices of French baguette and shredded cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted and begins to brown.
