Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme or herbes de Provence
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1/2 baguette, cut into small cubes
  • 2 cups shredded gruyere cheese

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees . In a large, heavy saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions, garlic, thyme and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper, lower the heat to medium and cook, stirring, until the onions are golden, about 15 minutes. Stir in the wine and cook for 3 minutes. Add the beef broth, reduce the heat to low and cover the saucepan.

Divide half of the bread cubes among four small ovenproof bowls and cover each with 1/4 cup cheese. Divide the soup among the bowls, then top with the remaining bread and cheese. Set the bowls on a baking sheet and bake until the cheese is bubbling, about 10 minutes.
