This recipe is a classic take on French onion soup, with red wine, onions and beef broth being the star ingredients. A lot of the flavor comes from the caramelization of the onions, which is a bit time consuming but worth your patience. Although onions are delicious and all, I also love the gooey melted cheese on top! Looking for a great homemade yet quick bread recipe to pair with this soup?

  • 10 Large Yellow Onions, peeled and sliced

  • 1/4 Cup Butter

  • 6 Cloves Garlic, minced

  • 2 Cartons Beef Stock

  • 1/2 Cup red wine

  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 Cups Shredded gruyere or mozzarella Cheese

  • Fresh Baked Bread, sliced

  • Slice your onions and add to a pot with melted butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and sauté together over medium low head until caramelized. This will take up to 45 minutes to accomplish, stirring regularly.

  • Once the onions have caramelized, add your minced garlic and stir together for another minute.

  • Deglaze the pan with wine and cook together for 2 minutes.

  • Add beef stock and Worcestershire sauce, stir together and cover. Allow to simmer for at least 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, shred 2 cups of mozzarella cheese and slice your bread to place on top of your soup. Toast the bread and set aside.

  • Place oven safe bowl on a cookie sheet.

  • Spoon hot soup into an oven save bowl and top with your toasted bread and cheese.

  • Place in the oven to broil just until cheese is melted.

  • Serve hot
