Classic French Onion Soup
This Classic One-Pot French Onion Soup is home-y, easy to make, ready on about 35 minutes, and is truly SO delicious. It will become your new go-to for dinner during the colder months!
In a 6 quart stock pot, melt butter.
Add onions and sauté until cooked down and starting to brown.
Add wine and cook an additional 5 minutes.
Add chicken stock, beef stock, and thyme.
Simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Ladle into serving bowls.
Top with bread slices and cheese.
Place under broiler until cheese is melted and edges of bread are toasted.
- If you don't have homemade chicken stock or beef stock, you can use bullion cubes or your favorite store-bough brand.
- Dried thyme can be used in place of fresh, but you will need to decrease the amount to about 1/8 teaspoon.
- Fontina is our favorite with this soup, but you can use any kind of white cheese like it! From Gruyère to a white cheddar.
- Make sure the onions are thinly sliced! I highly recommend using a mandoline to make the slicing easier!
- Use a white wine with a lot of citrus!
- This soups keeps and reheats really well.
