BEST FRENCH ONION SOUP
6 large yellow onions (4 pounds)
halved and cut pole to pole ¼ inch thick
4 cups low sodium Swanson’s chicken broth
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cups beef broth
6 sprigs fresh thyme, tied together
2 cups water, plus extra for deglazing
1 bay leaf
½ cup dry sherry
Ground black pepper
- Place onions, butter (cut into 3 pieces), and 1 tsp salt in sprayed Dutch oven. Cook covered 1 hour. Stir onions scraping bottom and sides of pot. Return to oven with lid slightly ajar and continue to cook until onions are very soft and golden brown, 1 ½ - 1 ¾ hours longer stirring after 1 hour.
- Place pot over medium high heat and cook onions until liquid evaporates and onions brown, 15 – 20 minutes. Continue to cook and stir until pot bottom is covered with thick crust, 6 – 8 minutes. Stir in ¼ cup water, scraping pot bottom to loosen crust. Cook until water evaporates and pot bottom has formed another dark crust, 6 – 8 minutes. Repeat 2 or 3 more times until onions are very dark brown. Stir in sherry and cook, stirring until sherry evaporates about 5 minutes. (Adjust heat throughout this entire process)
- Stir in broths, 2 cups water, thyme, bay leaf, and ½ teaspoon salt scraping up any final bits of browned crust on bottom and sides of pot. Increase heat to high and bring to simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 30 minutes. Remove and discard herbs, then season with salt and pepper.
- While soup simmers, arrange baguette slices on baking sheet and bake at 400 until bread is dry, crisp and golden at edges about 10 minutes.
- Adjust oven rack 6 inches from broiler element. Fill bowls with 1 ¾ cup soup. Top with baguette slices and sprinkle evenly with shredded Gruyere (8 oz). Broil until cheese is melted 3 – 5 minutes.
