Recipe Ingredients for French Onion Soup

6 yellow onions, medium, peeled and thinly sliced.
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups of water
6 cubes beef bouillon
1/2 cup white wine
1 tbsp bay leaf
1/4 tsp thyme, dry
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
6 slices french bread
6 oz swiss cheese

Recipe Directions for French Onion Soup

  1. In a large saucepan, sauté the onions in the olive oil on medium high heat until well browned, but not burned, about 30-40 minutes (or longer). Add the sugar about 10 minutes into the process to help with the carmelization.

  2. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add the stock, vermouth or wine, bay leaf, and thyme. Cover partially and simmer until the flavors are well blended, about 30 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Discard the bay leaf.

  3. To serve you can either use individual oven-proof soup bowls or one large casserole dish. Ladle the soup into the bowls or casserole dish. Cover with the toast and sprinkle with cheese. Put into the broiler for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until the cheese bubbles and is slightly browned. Serve immediately.
