Our French Onion Soup is made from sweet caramelized onions in a flavorful beef broth then topped with toasted slices of French baguette and both Gruyere and Emmentaler shredded cheese.
Butter and Olive Oil
Thyme and Bay Leaf
Gruyere and Emmentaler
Caramelize the Onions: Cut onions into thick slices. Heat the butter and olive oil then add onions and sweat them until they become translucent. Reduce heat and continue to cook. 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: Place oven/broiler-safe soup bowls on a baking sheet. Fill each with the soup and then top with slices of French baguette and shredded cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted and begins to brown.
