Kristin Andrus shares how to make a delicious French Onion Soup.
Homemade French Onion Soup
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 sweet yellow onions, peeled, and thinly sliced
1 tsp granulated sugar
1/2 C cooking Sherry
6 cups store-bought low-sodium beef broth or Carton of French onion soup (broth)
4 sprigs thyme
1 garlic clove, minced
2 bay leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
1 C shreddd gruyere cheese
Melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add the oil and onions; cook onions are until softened, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Add the salt, pepper, and sugar; continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are deep golden brown and caramelized, reducing heat slightly if onions seem to be browning too quickly, 35 to 45 minutes more.
Add sherry and raise heat to high. Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated, 8 to 10 minutes.
Add thyme, bay leaves, and broth to pot with onions. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, uncovered, until broth is thickened and flavorful, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Heat the broiler. Cut two 1/2-inch baguette slices for every serving of soup. Place baguette on a rimmed baking sheet and toast in oven until crisp and dry but not browned, about 1 minute per side.
Place ramekins or oven-safe bowls on a rimmed baking sheet, Top each serving of soup with two garlic-rubbed toasts. Divide cheese among the servings, covering the bread and some of the soup. Transfer baking sheet to oven and broil until cheese is melted and bubbling, about 5 minutes.
