  • 2 lb yellow onions (peeled, cut in half, then thinly sliced)
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dry sherry
  • 3 1/2 cups homemade beef stock
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • coarse salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 small French baguette, sliced on a bias into 3/4″ thick pieces
  • 12 oz medium-hard cheese


Step 1

Slice the yellow onions thinly. After this, melt 4 tbsp butter in a large heavy pot, then add the sliced onions. As soon as they start to produce moisture, add 1 tsp of sugar and drizzle 1 tbsp all-purpose flour. Keep stirring until the onions are caramelized and the color turns nutty brown, then add 1 tbsp all-purpose flour. Mix well, cooking the flour completely.

Next, add 1/2 cup dry sherry, deglaze the pot, then add 3 1/2 cups homemade beef stock. Then, season with 2 tsp of thyme and a large pinch of salt. Bring it to a boil and reduce the heat to a simmer. Let it simmer for 30 minutes. Once done, ladle the soup into serving bowls, then add 2 pieces of sliced baguette on top and shredded medium-hard cheese. Place the soup bowls on a baking sheet, then place it in the broiler until cheese is melted and crusty. Serve and enjoy!
