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.
