French Onion Soup

The cold weather is definitely here to stay for a while... it was 5ºC this morning in Vancouver!  That means nesting and warm, wintery food.  So, today I thought I would share my recipe for French Onion Soup.  Hope you like it.


3 onions, sliced
1/2 stick of butter
1tsp salt
1tsp pepper
3 - 4 tablespoons of fresh thyme leaves
2 cups beef stock
1 cup chicken stock
1 baguette, diced
1 cup gruyere cheese, grated
splash of sherry

1. In a medium sauce pan, sautee onions in butter with salt and pepper until cooked down and dark brown( about 40 minutes).
2. Add fresh thyme, sherry, beef and chicken stock and simmer slowly for 1 hour.
3. Ladel into an oven-safe dish or ramkin.
4. Place 1 slice of bread on top and cover with cheese.
5. Broil in the oven until golden brown.
