Now that it is finally colder, it is SOUP weather, which means I can make a giant vat of soup on Sunday night that will last for at least a second dinner and possibly a lunch or two throughout the week.  This past weekend, there happened to be a sale on onions (buy 1 bag, get 1 free).  So of course that meant we were making French onion soup and I had already planned to make bread.

Ingredients:

  • bag of onions, cut into thin half rings
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon Calvados
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 6 cups low sodium beef broth (I ran out and had to use chicken, oops)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 bay leaves
  • bread, thickly sliced and toasted
  • grated Gruyere

Instructions:

  1. Heat the butter in a large pot {the Boy had already heated a skillet so we transferred after caramelizing} over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and saute over medium/low heat until onions turn translucent and then finally begin to caramelize.
  3. Add the Calvados and let it absorb.
  4. Turn up the heat and add the wine.  Reduce by half.
  5. Add the stock and bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer.  Add in bay leaves and salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Simmer until soup is reduced by approximately a third.
  7. Traditionally you’d bake the bread with cheese on top.  However, I had just made homemade bread straight from the oven, which was DELISH.  Instead, I sprinkled the top with Gruyere, added a dollop of Creme fraiche, and some rosemary.
