Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Place the onion in the butter and saute for 5 to 10 minutes, or until tender. Stir in the thyme and remove from heat.
  3. In a large pot over high heat, combine the consomme, bay leaves and white wine, if desired. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, stir in the sauteed onions and allow to heat through, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Ladle soup into 4 individual oven-safe bowls, filling each about 3/4 of the way. Top each bowl with 2 slices of baguette bread and then cover each with the cheese.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 10 to 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I used two larger onions, as we like a little more "substance" in our soup, and only used 2 bay leaves. I also just added the broth and wine to the pan I had done the onions in, so I could scrape all of the onion flavour into the broth...excellent soup. Thanks for the great recipe.

This recipe was wonderful. I did use the wine and followed the recipe exactly, except that I used Guyerre (may have spelled that wrong)cheese and toasted the bagettes. Thanks for the great recipe!
