French Onion Soup

Updated: Feb 5

If you're looking for your next favorite soup... this is it! My homemade croutons and mix of Gruyere and Swiss cheese are the perfect toppings to this rich and flavorful soup.

Here's the Recipe:


Servings: 6 Cups of Soup

Prep Time: 10 min.

Cook Time: 1 hour

Dutch Oven - Shop My Dutch Oven HERE

Baking Crocks - Get Them HERE

Baking Sheet

Cutting Board

Knife, Soup Spoon


6 Yellow Onions, thinly sliced

4 Cups of Beef Broth (low sodium preferably)

1 Tbsp Garlic Powder

1 Tbsp Sugar

1 tsp Salt

3 Tbsp Flour

2 Sticks of Butter (1 Cup)

Fresh Thyme

2 Tbsp Better Than Bullion Paste or another Beef Paste

1 Cup of Swiss Cheese, I used Jalsberg

1 Cup of Gruyere Cheese


  1. Add the butter to a pot. I used my Dutch Oven. Once the butter is melted add in the sliced onions and 2 sprigs of fresh thyme. Cook for 20-30 minutes. The onions should be soft and browning a little bit.

  2. Add the flour and mix in well. Then, add in the salt, sugar, and garlic powder. Next, add in the Better Than Bullion paste to the pot. Mix well to combine before adding in the beef broth.

  3. Bring the soup to a boil, reduce heat and cover with a lid. Let the soup simmer for 40 minutes. This will cook the onions down.

  4. Once the soup is done, add to oven-safe crocks, top with croutons and cheese. Broil the crocks of soup until the cheese is bubbly and browned a little.

  5. Garnish with fresh thyme and enjoy!

It's best to serve immediately.

Stay tuned for my homemade crouton recipe:)
