Expert Tips

*Do not use glass containers; they cannot withstand the heat from the broiler and may break.

The long, slow cooking of the onions and shallots gives this soup its rich flavor and color. Gruyère cheese gives it a rich, nutty and buttery flavor.

Omit French bread and cheeses; do not broil.

Directions

  • 1 In 4-quart nonstick Dutch oven, melt butter over medium-high heat; add oil. Stir in onions and shallots to coat with butter and oil. Cook uncovered 10 minutes, stirring every 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 30 to 35 minutes longer, stirring well every 5 minutes, until onions are deep golden brown (onions will shrink during cooking).
  • 2 Stir in wine, broth, thyme, herbes de Provence, salt, pepper and bay leaf. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 minutes. Remove bay leaf.
  • 3 Set oven control to broil. Place toasted bread in 4 ovenproof bowls or individual ceramic casseroles.* Divide soup evenly among bowls. Place 1 Gruyère cheese slice on each; sprinkle each with Parmesan cheese. Place bowls on cookie sheet or in shallow pan with sides.
  • 4 Broil about 5 inches from heat 1 to 2 minutes or just until cheese is melted and golden brown. Watch carefully so cheese does not burn. If desired, serve with additional French bread.
