Cozy French Onion Soup



  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup salted butter
  • 1 head of garlic, peeled
  • 3 lbs. of sliced sweet onions
  • 6 cups beef broth
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 beef bouillons
  • 2-3 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 2-3 bay leaves
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup shredded Four Cheeses Asiago, Fontina, Parmesan, Provolone blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 gluten free baguette, sliced
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Start with adding the oil and butter to a large pot over medium heat.
  3. Add the sliced onions and season with salt and pepper. Stirring often, sauté the onions for 30-45 minutes. When they are translucent, add the garlic cloves and continue sautéing until the onions become golden and caramelized.
  4. While the onions are cooking down, place the slices of baguette on a small baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with the Italian seasoning. Toast for 3-5 minutes on each side. Set aside to cool.
  5. When caramelized, deglaze the onions by mixing in the white wine and Worcestershire sauce. Scraping the bottom of the pan to get all of the caramelized bits.
  6. Add the crumbled bouillon cubes before pouring in all 6 cups of beef broth. Toss in the thyme and bay leaves.
  7. Bring the soup to a boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  8. In a small bowl, combine the cheeses.
  9. Scoop a healthy portion of soup into oven-safe ramekins. Top with a few toasted baguette slices and a heavy sprinkle of cheese.
  10. Bake for 10-15 minutes and then finish by broiling on low for an additional 5 minutes. The cheese should be bubbly and slightly golden.
  11. Serve immediately with a sprig of fresh thyme.
