If you love French onion soup and cooked it earlier, you will probably notice two things right away. Firstly, this recipe uses white wine instead of red wine, and secondly, a combination of beef and chicken broth is used instead of beef broth. The taste of the soup is a little sweeter and richer, so this variation of the classic dish can be called very successful.
Preparation time for ingredients: 10 minutes
Total cooking time: about 1 hour
1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Put onions and fry until golden brown (about 25 minutes). Add flour and mix. Season with salt and pepper, then pour in white wine and simmer the onions on low heat for 3 minutes. Now pour both types of broth, add thyme and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, remove thyme sprigs.
2. Preheat the oven. Put 2 slices of baguette on a baking sheet, sprinkle with cheese on top. Put in the oven for 1 minute – it is necessary that the cheese is melted.
3. Pour the soup in a bowl, put the baguette with cheese on top. You can also decorate with a sprig of thyme. Enjoy your meal!
