  • 1 large French sourdough loaf
  • 3 large sweet onions
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 cup baby swiss or gruyere fresh grated
  • ¾ cup beef consommé
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Slice onions in ¼" 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Bake at 425°F for 15 minutes in a dutch oven or high lipped baking dish.  Finish by broiling on high for 5 minutes.
