The best French Onion Soup you will ever make
The best French Onion Soup you will ever make

Even though it’s technically spring, it sure doesn’t feel like it. There was even snow this week! One dish that I love making on a chilly evening is French Onion Soup. It’s a little time-consuming, but trust me, this soup is worth the wait. I’ve made this tons of times and have combined a bunch of different recipes and ideas to make this soup my own.

Before spring really warms up, make up a large batch of this French Onion Soup – you won’t regret it!

French Onion Soup

  • 4 large onions, sliced thin
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 C. white wine
  • 32 oz. chicken stock
  • 32 oz. beef stock
  • 1/5 t. thyme
  • a crap ton of gruyere cheese
  • sliced French bread
  1. Melt the butter in a large pot (I use my Le Creuset pot) and add onions. Caramelize the onions for about 40 minutes until they are a deep, golden color.
  2. Deglaze the pan with white wine. Stir to remove any brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
  3. Add stocks and thyme, simmer for 30 minutes.
  4. Ladle soup into individual, oven-safe pots. Top with one or two slices of French bread and add cheese on top. Put under broiler for a few minutes until cheese is brown and bubbly. 
  5. Serve with more french bread and a good glass of wine.

Hope you enjoy this recipe and it warms you up while we wait for spring!
