Onion Soup

Ingredients for Onion Soup

10 large Yellow Onions, peeled & sliced
2 cup Beef Stock
2 cup Chicken Broth (unsalted)
2 oz Brandy
2 oz Sherry
2 oz Blended Oil
Kosher Salt, to taste
sliced Gruyere Cheese
Toast Points

Method for Onion Soup

• Get a large pot and heat over medium-high heat. Once the pot is hot, add 2 oz of blended oil and add your onions.
• After the onions start to caramelize, stir to prevent burning and reduce the heat to medium. Let the onions slowly caramelize until all the natural sugars are out.
• Next, shut the mixture off and let cool for 10 minutes. Then add the chicken stock and veal stock and bring the entire mixture to a boil. After the mixture comes to a boil, add your brandy and sherry.
• Season with kosher salt, and taste to make sure the mixture is to your specific liking.

To Plate

• Use a soup cup and ladle the onion soup mixture in; leaving only enough room for toast points and cheese.
• Take 3 toast points and place on top of the soup then cover with 3 pieces of Gruyere Cheese, and place in the oven at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
• Once the top of the cheese has browned, carefully remove from the oven and serve.
