Onion Soup with Fontina and Thyme
Level: Easy
Total: 39 min
Prep: 5 min
Cook: 34 min
Yield: 4 servings


3 tablespoons olive oil
2 large Vidalia onions, sliced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
4 cups beef broth
4 slices ciabatta bread, cubed
4 ounces sliced fontina cheese
Special equipment: 4 (1 1/2-cup) ovenproof ramekins


In a medium, heavy saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are tender, about 10 minutes. Add the thyme and broth. Simmer, uncovered, until the onions are soft, about 15 minutes.

Divide the soup between the 4 ovenproof ramekins. Divide the cubed bread among the ramekins. Top each with slices of fontina cheese. Place under the broiler, until the cheese is golden and bubbly, about 4 minutes. Serve immediately.

  1. Cozy Cheesy Onion Soup should be labeled as" Lazy Cheesy Onion soup. Gurl, those onions need to sweat and caramelize, and you went to Culinary School? It's a Damn Shame. If you were serious, this wouldn't have been a problem. Every good cook and chef knows the basics of a Classic French Onion Soup. Fontina and ciabatta bread, are you actually kidding me? Thumbs down, girl.
