French Onion Soup

If you are from the Shoals area, then you'll appreciate this recipe. It tastes very similar to Dale's onion soup.
You will need:

1 Tbs. butter
1 Tbs. olive oil
2 medium onions, sliced (I mince mine like McDonald's hamburger onions)
2 cans of beef stock
2-3 Tbs Dale's sauce
Sprig of fresh thyme (I just use some thyme in a bottle...ha, Jim Croce)
Bay leaf
1 1/2 cups grated Gruyere or mozzarella cheese
loaf of French bread, cut in slices OR croutons

Saute' onions in olive oil and butter until caramelized and tender, about 15 minutes. Add beef stock, bay leaf, Dale's sauce, thyme leaves, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes. Serve with croutons and grated cheese.

Here's what it looks like...Yeah, maybe kind of gross looking, but believe me, it's delicious!
I've been a bad blogger lately. I've been busy with my job and have also been working on a larger project. Hopefully I'll be finished soon so I can post it. I hope everyone has a happy Groundhog's day!

  1. I made some a couple of weeks ago but didn't have Dale's...and substituted chicken broth for beef broth. It was unacceptable. :)
