French Onion Soup

Submitted by: JENLMCC


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    6 large red onions, peeled and thinly sliced.
    Olive oil
    1/4 teaspoon of sugar
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    8 cups of beef stock or chicken stock
    1/2 cup of dry white wine
    1 bay leaf
    1/4 teaspoon of dry thyme
    Salt and pepper
    8 slices of toasted French bread
    1 1/2 cups of grated Swiss Gruyere with a little grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

1 In a large saucepan, sauté the onions in the olive oil on medium high heat until well browned, but not burned, about 30 minutes. 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, 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 sprink with cheese. Put into the broiler for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until the cheese bubbles and is slightly browned. Serve immediately.

Serves 4-6.
