French onion soup is one of those dishes that uses deceivingly few ingredients and yet tastes so rich and gourmet. Sure it takes a little time, but very little effort. And the payoff is fantastic.
You just take about six of these.
Slice them into half moons, add a stick of butter and sautee for an hour.
After an hour, you get this — carmelized onions are delish!
You add a cup of wine, a box of beef broth, a couple sprigs of thyme and 3 cups of water.
Let it simmer for about an hour, until it looks like this.
Top with gruyère cheese and YUM!
