This is comfort at its best. You just can't do better than French Onion Soup...with homemade beef stock and Gruyere cheese...oh yes.


  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter 1 stick
  • 8 medium yellow onions sliced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 8 cups of beef stock
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 1 tbsp Kosher salt
  • 6 slices bread toasted
  • 2 cups shredded Gruyere cheese or sliced
  • 1/2 cup fried onions you can use French's


  1. Melt butter in large pot (Dutch oven works very well) over medium heat.
  2. Add onions.
  3. Stir frequently (about every 5 to 10 minutes) for about 1 hour to 1 hour and fifteen minutes, the onions will turn a dark brown color.
  4. Add the wine and deglaze the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil.
  5. Add stock, thyme and salt...simmer for about 15 minutes. Taste, and add more salt, if necessary.
  6. Turn on the broiler.
  7. Ladle the soup into bowls.
  8. Add a toasted piece of bread on top of the soup, and then place a handful of grated Gruyere cheese over the top
  9. Place under broiler and cook for about 4 minutes, until cheese is golden on top (keep an eye on it, don't let it burn!).
  10. Remove from oven and top with fried onions and remaining thyme.
  11. Serve immediately.
