Serving Size: Serves 2-4 Ingredients
  • 3 T Butter
  • 18 oz sliced thin Onion
  • 1 T Thyme (leaves only)
  • 1/4 Cups Dry White Wine
  • 4 Cups Beef Stock
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 8 Slices Italian Baguette
  • 1 Cups shredded Gruyere
  • 1 Bay Leaf
Directions
  • In a medium sized pot, over medium high heat, melt your butter. Add in your onions and thyme and cook, stirring frequently over a medium heat for about 45-50 minutes. You want to caramelized and break down your onions - but don't burn them! Monitor your heat and stir often to prevent burning.
  • Once caramelized, add in your white wine and deglaze your pot, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Reduce the wine until it's dry.
  • Add in your beef stock and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer about 30 minutes. Taste, and season with salt and pepper. Remove Bay leaf.
  • Put your oven on Hi Broil. Ladle your soup into oven safe Ramekins. Place a slice of baguette on top and top with 1/4 cup of Shredded Gruyere. Bake about 2 minutes in the oven until the cheese has melted and browns slightly. Serve.
