Sorry to all francophiles if the title of this post is incorrect. I made the French Onion Soup yesterday and it was hella good. The original recipe from The Epicurean was easy enough to follow:
Chop 2 onions into bits
Fry said onions in a crap ton of butter
Add 2 qts of broth, some parsley, some thyme and a bayleaf
Salt and pepper to taste
Bring everything to a boil then simmer for 20 minutes
Meanwhile, chop up some bread into pieces and toast in the oven
Strain out bouquet of herbs
Line bowl with toast and gruyere cheese
Add soup to bowl
Top with more toast and cheese and bake in oven until cheese is browned.
It came out pretty damn good for a first try. Next time I’m using white onion instead of yellow and a plain baguette instead of sourdough.
