Recipe Tuesday: French Onion Soup

Ahhh fall and winter, soup and stew season for me! I love soups and stews but I feel weird eating them any other time of the year. So as soon as fall hits I am all about the soups. I may be sharing a lot in the next few weeks, just stay with me, they're amazing!!


French Onion Soup


  • 1 pound onions
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. brown sugar
  • 28oz. beef broth
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce 
  • Ground pepper
  • 6 slices french bread
  • 1/3 cup swiss or gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 6 slices swiss or gruyere cheese  
  • Slice onions, thinly
  • Saute in butter for 45 minutes
  • add thyme after 30 minutes 
  • add flour and brown sugar (after the 45 minute onion sweat), simmer for 3 minutes
  • add broth, pepper and worcestershire sauce (stir well, and scrap up the bits on the bottom)
  • bring to a boil and then immediately reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes (the longer it simmers the better it tastes)
  • add shredded cheese and stir well, continue to simmer
  • place bread slices on baking sheet, add slices of cheese, broil for 1 minute
  • place bread in bowl, ladle soup on top

*the recipe included with the picture is not mine, and I've never made it, but I'm sure it's good and you can try that one too!
