Apple French Onion Soup

I know, I know. You're probably thinking, 'Soup? Really? It's MAY!' Well, I love French Onion Soup, and my taste-buds couldn't care less what month it is. Besides, I made this about a month ago, and if you spent this past April in New England, then you know April was friggin freezing.” Mercedes


3 tablespoons butter

3 pounds onions, sliced (about 12-15 onions)

½ cup water

1 apple, peeled and chopped

1 teaspoon thyme, chopped

3 tablespoons flour

1 cup white wine

2 cups beef or vegetable broth

1 cup apple cider (or apple juice)

2 bay leaves

Salt & pepper to taste

French bread, sliced

1½ cup gruyere or fontina, shredded


Melt the butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat.

Add the onions and water and cook, covered, until completely tender and caramelized and 
golden, about 2 HOURS, adding more water if needed.

Add the chopped apple and thyme and cook for 1 minute.

Sprinkle in the flour and cook, stirring, for another minute.

Add the wine and deglaze the pan.

Add the broth, cider (or apple juice) and bay leaves.

Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes.

Season the soup with salt and pepper and divide the between 4 oven safe bowls.

Top each bowl with a slice of French bread, followed by the cheese, and broil until the cheese 
is bubbling and golden brown, (about 2-3 minutes).
