French Onion Soup

First I want to give a "shout out" to a follower from Poland who sent me a recipe to try yesterday. I can't wait to try it out and maybe even post it for everyone else. Thanks so much!! :)

  • Okay, so, I really like french onion soup, but I NEVER make it. Well, tonight that changes. Here goes something yummy! Let me know how it turns out for you and leave a comment telling me how you changed it to fit your personal taste.  (IE: jalapenos? lol) I really hope you enjoy it!

  • French Onion Soup:

  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter cut into pieces                      2 tablespoons olive oil
  •     2 large yellow onions sliced                                       2 cups water
  •     2 cans low sodium chicken broth                             2 cans beef broth
  •     1 teaspoon dried thyme & bay leaves (optional)       salt and pepper to taste                                   
  •     4 slices or cubed French bread                                 4 slices provolone cheese
  •     2 slices Swiss cheese, diced                                   1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  1. Melt butter with olive oil in an 8 quart stock pot on medium heat. Add onions and continually stir until tender and translucent. 3-5 minutes.
  2. Add beef broth, chicken broth, bay leaf, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper, and simmer for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat the oven broiler.
  4. Ladle soup into oven safe serving bowls and place one slice of bread on top of each (bread may be broken into pieces if you prefer). Layer each slice of bread with a slice of provolone, 1/2 slice diced Swiss and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Place bowls on cookie sheet and broil in the preheated oven until cheese bubbles and browns slightly.
