Ingredients:

Sweet French Onion Soup

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 pounds (about 5 medium) Ewa sweet onions, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 6 cups beef stock
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 12 (3/4-inch-thick) French baguette slices
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyère cheese

Directions:

Melt butter in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onions, and cook, stirring often, until deep golden brown and caramelized, about 20-30 minutes. Stir in garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in water, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the stockpot. Stir in beef stock, thyme and bay leaves. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly reduced, about 15-20 minutes. Remove and discard thyme sprigs and bay leaves. Stir in white wine vinegar; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Heat oven to broil. Place baguette slices onto a baking sheet. Place into oven and broil until golden brown on both sides, about 1-2 minutes per side; set aside. Divide soup into ramekins or ovenproof bowls. Place onto a baking sheet. Top with baguette slices to cover the surface of the soup completely; sprinkle with cheeses. Place into oven and broil until golden brown and cheeses have melted; about 2 minutes. Serve immediately. Serves 6.
