  • Author: Lauren

Soup soaked bread, caramelized onions and tangy, melted baby swiss transform French Onion Soup into a shareable, crowd pleasing pull apart bread!



  • 1 lg French sourdough loaf
  • 3 lg white onions
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 c baby swiss or gruyere (fresh grated)
  • 3/4 c beef consommé
  • 2 tsp kosher salt


  1. Slice onions in 1/4″ half-moon slices.  Heat a large sauté pan on medium.  Melt butter and olive oil together.   Working in three rounds, layer sliced onions and sprinkle with salt.  Let simmer for 5 minutes on medium, then turn heat to low.  Let simmer for 10 minutes before stirring.
  2. Cook onions until caramelized and browning.  Add beef consommé and reduce over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring continuously.  There should be some liquid, but thickened.
  3. Slice bread crosswise in 1″ squares.  Stuff the cracks with soup and onion mixture.  Spread any addition soup and onion mixture over the top.  Repeat with grated cheese.
  4. Bake at 425°F for 15 minutes in a dutch oven or high lipped baking dish.  Finish by broiling on high for 5 minutes.
