    Yeah, I know, everyone has a recipe. This one is an amalgamation and modification of two I found out there by Michael Smith and Ricardo, and our family loves it.

    1. 1
      Melt the butter in a large soup pot. Add the onions and splash of water, and cover. Let onions soften at medium high for 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Remove the lid, turn heat to low and begin to slowly caramelize onions, stirring frequently. This will take about one hour. I did this while watching tv (food shows, natch!) and got up to stir at every ad break.
    3. 3
      Season with salt and pepper, and add thyme and mustard. Add beer and bring to a boil, add chicken stock and bring to a boil again. Reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes. Add more salt or pepper or stock if necessary.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    5. 5
      Ladle the soup into 4 oven-proof onion soup bowls. Add toasted baguette slices. Sprinkle with cheese.
    6. 6
      Bake for 10 minutes. Bowls will be very hot. Let cool for 10 minutes. Cheese will be still delightfully melted!

      Thanks to pic a chef I picked this recipe to try.

      This is a nice onion soup to make. I chose to put the mustard and thyme in when I added the beer to this.

      Family like the flavor of this.
