French Onion Soup, what’s not to like? Deep, rich soup sweetened by caramelized onions and laced with thyme, all blanketed by a thick, gooey top layer of melted cheese. The key to such a simple dish like this is to pick the best quality ingredients, and take the time to make them really shine. We use slowly caramelized onions, sherry and white wine in our base, along with beef stock, and rather than topping with the classic swiss, we opt for nutty and sweet Cavemaster Reserve Annelies. One taste of your homemade version and you may never order French Onion Soup in a restaurant again.

  • Prep Time : 15 min.
  • Cook Time : 1 hr. 45 min.
  • Total Time : 2 hr.
  • Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb Murray's Cavemaster Reserve Annelies, grated
  • 3lb yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 sprigs thyme
  • 2 resh bay leaves
  • 3 tsp all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sherry wine
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 8 cups beef stock
  • 1/2 baguette
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Start by caramelizing the onions. Add the onions to a large pan with the salt, sugar, butter, and herbs.
  2. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until dark brown. This should take at least 50 minutes.
  3. Once caramelized, remove the herbs. Add the flour and cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Add the sherry and white wine and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Add the beef stock and bring to a simmer.
  4. Simmer over medium heat until the flavors have combined, about 35 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, slice the baguette diagonally and toast on a sheet tray in a 350F oven until dry, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
  6. Once the soup has finished simmering, portion into small soup bowls or ramekins and transfer the bowls to a parchment lined sheet tray.
  7. Top the soup with the baguette slices, then with the cheese. Carefully place the cheese covered soup under a broiler and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and browned. Let cool slightly and enjoy.
