How to Make French Onion Soup


  1. Melt butter in large pot; add thyme, garlic, bay leafs, onions and salt & peper. Sautee to caramalize the onions, about 30-45 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
