Being a huge french onion soup fan there was no hesitation for me to try this recipe when I saw it on Pinterest. It was absolutely delicious and without a doubt one of the best sandwiches I ever had. My mouth is drooling as I type this!
This is not my personal recipe but one I pinned off of Pinterest that originally came from BS’ in the Kitchen website. I will definitely be trying out more recipes off their site!
- 1 Yellow Onion
- Pinch of Thyme
- Pinch of Flour
- Salt & Pepper
- 2-3 Ounces Concentrated Beef Stock (~30 ml in an ounce)
- ½-1 Ounce of Sherry
- ¾-½ cup Gruyere Cheese
- 2 Slices of French Bread
- First, get a pan with a tablespoon of butter in it, on medium-low heat. While you’re waiting for your pan to heat up, peel and evenly slice your onion, putting them in the pan once sliced. Stir the onions to coat them in the butter, and continue stirring only as often as needed to avoid sticking or burning. Your onions should begin to get that nice caramelized brown color after about a half an hour. Once they have caramelized, sprinkle your onion with a pinch of flour and thyme, stirring to mix in. Add your sherry, allowing it to reduce down and soak into the onions, then add in your beef stock and salt & pepper to taste, allowing to reduce as well.
- Butter every side of your bread, pile with your onions and your shredded Gruyere cheese and fry both sides in a pan on medium heat until golden brown.
