French Onion Soup

French Onion Soup created by BLUE ROSE

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.

ingredients

directions

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Ladle the soup into 4 oven-proof onion soup bowls. Add toasted baguette slices. Sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Bowls will be very hot. Let cool for 10 minutes. Cheese will be still delightfully melted!
