Easy French Onion Soup Recipe

Do you love soup? They are comforting, warm and just such a cozy up and slow down kind of food.

This specific soup is one of those recipes that you can make super fast and get good flavor or take some time and get amazing knock your socks off kind of flavor. We do both.

 

4 cups of beef broth. This is where you can go fast and use a box or go slow and make your own.

5 large red onions sliced

1/2 stick of butter

3 Tablespoons of the best olive oil you can get your hands on

1 cup of  marsala cooking wine

or use the following three ingredients

The non alcohol version is made by the following three ingredients being mixed together.

1 cup white grape juice

2 tablespoons sherry vinegar

1 tablespoon  vanilla

Mixed together in place of the marsala

2 tsp minced thyme

Five cloves of garlic sliced

Dried out french bread sliced (usually two slices per person) Because everyone needs two bowls of this soup.

Provolone cheese sliced. One slice for every bowl served.

Take sliced onions, simmer with butter and olive oil until caramelized. The more time you take caramelizing these onions the better it will taste. Sometimes life comes at you fast though and you need to go quick. it will still taste delish.

Add chopped garlic and cook for an additional three-four minutes.

Add thyme

Pour in the cooking wine and let simmer on low heat for five minutes.

Pour in beef broth.

Let simmer on low for 30 minutes.

Divide in oven proof bowls and then top with bread and a slice of cheese.

Broil until cheese is bubbly. This can turn fast so keep any eye on it.

Enjoy.
