Super Easy French Onion Soup

Adapted from SeriousEats.com

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound sweet white or yellow onions, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups dry white wine, such as Muscadet
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6 cups chicken stock, preferably homemade
  • 4 slices crusty bread or baguette
  • 2 cups (5 ounces) freshly grated Gruyere cheese

DIRECTIONS

    1. Preheat the oven to 500°F. Combine the onions, wine, butter, and a large pinch of salt in a baking dish and cook, uncovered, until the wine is absorbed almost completely into the onions, and they are tender and golden, 45 minutes or perhaps a little longer.

    2. In the meantime, bring the chicken stock to a simmer in a large saucepan. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    3. When the onions are finished, divide them among 4 deep broiler-safe bowls. Cover the onions with chicken stock to fill the bowls, and place a slice of bread on each. Distribute the grated cheese over the bread and broil until the cheese is golden and bubbling, 2 to 3 minutes.
