When Jack and I were dating (many moons ago), we used to go to this little restaurant called Copperfields where they had the best French Onion Soup. It was either owned by, or dedicated to immortalizing, the magician David Copperfield.
This soup is made in the same "bistro" style. I hope you enjoy!
French Onion Soup4 Tbsp butter
6 large onions, sliced thinly
2 cups beef broth
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup water
1/2 cup red wine
1 bay leaf
salt & pepper
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
4 slices French bread
Heat a large pot over medium heat. Melt butter in the pot and add onions. Season with salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Cook onions about 25-30 minutes, until soft and carmelized.
While onions cook, place another saucepan on the stove and heat broths, water, wine and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then simmer on low until onions are done.
Add boiling broths to onions, then stir in cream. Season to taste. Remove from heat.
Place bread in bowl, top with cheese and ladel in soup.
