Ingredients For Rich and Simple French Onion Soup:

  1. ½ cup butter without salt
  2. Two tsp olive oil
  3. Four cups of onions, sliced
  4. Five cups of beef stock
  5. Two tsp of dry sherry
  6. A single tsp of dried thyme
  7. 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste
  8. 4 slices French bread
  9. 4 slices provolone cheese
  10. 2 slices Swiss cheese, diced
  11. ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions For Rich and Simple French Onion Soup:

  • Compile every component.
  • In an 8-quart stock pot set over medium heat, melt butter and olive oil together. When onions are soft and transparent, add them to butter and whisk them constantly. Avoid browning the onions.
  • Add beef broth, sherry, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Let simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat up the grill in the oven.
  • Pour soup into serving bowls that are safe to put in the oven, then top each with a slice of bread (you can break the bread into pieces if you’d like). Arrange a slice of provolone, half a slice of chopped Swiss, and a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese on each slice of bread.
  • Arrange the bowls on a baking sheet and bake under broil for two to three minutes, or until the cheese begins to bubble and brown slightly.
  • Enjoy while hot!

Which Onions Work Best in French Onion Soup?
Yellow onions sliced thinly are used to make French onion soup. Red or white onions can also be used to produce great soup; it just depends on your taste preferences and what you have on hand.

French Onion Soup Storage?
After the soup has cooled, transfer it to an airtight container, being careful not to include the croutons since fresh ones taste best. For up to three or four days, keep it refrigerated.

French Onion Soup Reheat Instructions?
On the burner, reheat the French onion soup by bringing it to a boil. If you want to get really fancy, you can top it up with additional cheese and broiled bread, but if you want something quick and simple, you can just use store-bought croutons.

French Onion Soup Freezer Instructions?
French onion soup is simple to freeze without the croutons: Simply pour the chilled soup into a freezer-safe, airtight jar and store in the freezer for up to three months. You can freeze it in serving-sized pieces to save yourself the trouble of having to thaw and refreeze the entire batch.

Just place the frozen French onion soup in the refrigerator and let it thaw over night. Hastily? If you immerse the sealed container in cool water, you can defrost it faster.
