French Onion Soup: Date Added: 20 Nov 2009
Listed in: Soups

Caramelized Onions

3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp oil
5 x large onions, peeled and sliced thinly
Splash of water

The Soup

1/2 cup brandy
3 sprigs fresh thyme
6 cups Homemade Chicken Broth (recipe from this episode)
Salt and pepper
4 slices slices multi-grain bread, cut into rounds to fit bowls, toasted
2 cups Swiss, Gruyere or emmenthal cheese, grated

Cooking Instructions

Caramelized Onions:

Toss the butter, oil, onions and water into a large soup pot with a few pinches of salt. Cover with a tight fitting lid and let the onions soften over a medium high heat, about 10 minutes.

When the water has evaporated, remove the lid, turn heat to low and begin to slowly caramelize onions, stirring frequently. This will take about one hour.

The Soup:

When the onions are a deep golden colour and have shrunk dramatically, add the brandy, thyme and broth. Season with salt and pepper and let simmer for 15 minutes. Preheat your oven's broiler.

Ladle the soup into 4 onion soup or ovenproof bowls and fit a slice of toast over each bowl. Sprinkle each evenly with the cheese and place bowls onto a baking sheet. Place under the broiler and broil until the soup is bubbling and the tops are golden brown.
