Ingredients

  • 6 medium yellow onions sliced into half-moons
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 to 6 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 5 cups reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup dry wine white or red
  • sliced french baguette 2-3 slices per bowl, toasted
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded gruyere cheese about 1/4 cup per bowl

Instructions

  1. To your slow cooker, add sliced onions, butter, olive oil, salt, pepper, sugar, bay leaves and thyme. Cook on low for 10-12 hours or overnight.

  2. After 12 hours, the onions should be caramelized and fragrant. Carefully remove the bay leaves and thyme. Add broth and wine (I used red), stir to combine and cook on low for another 6-8 hours.

  3. Arrange oven-safe bowls on a baking sheet and portion out soup. Top each bowl with 2-3 slices of toasted baguette and approx. 1/4 cup shredded gruyere cheese.

  4. Broil in the oven until cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve immediately and enjoy!
