I love the flavor that the dry cider imparted into this soup. I used Hornsby Hard Apple cider in this soup. Quick and easy to do. Made for Aussie Tag, Oct. 2008.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and sea salt and cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes or until onions are deep golden.
  2. Add cider and simmer until reduced by half, then add stock and simmer for 10 minutes. Season with pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, place bread on a foil-lined tray and cook both sides under a hot grill until dried but not browned. Spread with mustard and top with cheese, then grill until cheese bubbles and browns.
  4. Serve soup topped with the croûtons and sprigs of thyme.
