- Once onions are caramalized, remove bay leafs.
Add beef consomme, bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until beef consomme has reduced by half.
- Sprinkle with flour and stir. Keep heat low and cook for 10 mins to cook out the flour flavor.
Add beef broth to desired consistancy; simmer for 10-15 minutes.
- Once ready to serve, spoon soup into individual oven safe bowels. Add croutons and shredded gruyere cheese.
Heat broiler to high.
Place bowls on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil for easy clean up. Place under broiler for 3 minutes until gold and bubbly.
