Recipe by hollyberry

Yummy! This is my favourite french onion soup. You could spruce it up with a fancier cheese, but we love to quickly whip it up with ingredients on hand.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepot, melt butter in olive oil and cook onions over medium-high until nicely softened. Add thyme.
  2. Pour in port and allow to cook mostly off.
  3. Add beef broth, salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil and simmer 5 - 10 minutes.
  4. Pour into soup bowls. Top with snug-fitting slice of bread (toasting helps it stay afloat) and shredded cheese.
  5. Broil until cheese is golden. Serve immediately.
