  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir and cook onions in butter until golden brown, 15 minutes.
  2. Stir in the garlic and cook 1 minute. Pour in the beer and beef broth and season with mustard, thyme, black pepper and the bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  4. Remove bay leaf from soup and ladle soup into a large casserole or individual ovenproof bowls, leaving about 1 inch of room at the top of the dish or dishes. Float slices of toasted bread on the soup and pile generously with Gruyere.
  5. Bake in preheated oven 10 minutes, until cheese is lightly browned and bubbly.

This was a big hit with my friends! Everyone loved it! On demand, I ended up making this the next week for another party! Thanks!***Update. Almost 5 years later I am still making this recipe...

This soup was very flavorful I added a splash of red wine for color. I did use Vidallia onions which made the soup far too sweet. I would stick to white or yellow onions.

I have never made French Onion Soup before this recipe is not only easy, it tastes fantastic! My husband has been wanting me to make French onion soup because its his favorite. Well my husband s...

Very good recipe! Seasonings are always what I am most tentitive about and it is what makes a good dish great. I used a half bottle of Bass Dark Ale, a little sugar to brown up the onions nicely...

This has been a hit whenever I serve it. I never use large sweet onions, so I don't need as many as the recipie calls for. A cup measurement would be nice. I also put a little worchestershire s...

It is VERY unusual when I don't doctor up a recipe. In the case of this one, it was not necessary. Did add a bit more dry mustard and black pepper than called for, and used Feta instead of Gr...

This soup is absolutely delicious. I love the addition of the beer (rather than the wine that many onion soup recipes use). I used Newcastle brown ale and it added a nice taste to the recipe. ...
