Dinner Tonight: French Onion Soup With A Twist

The weather turned or as everyone would say, has become ultra unpredictable – where one day it is in the high 80’s and the next, down to the low 50’s.  I would say, I guess this is Fall, but the weather in San Francisco is a toss-up every day of the year. Hardly sun, some sun, wind, and fog – I call it unpredictably consistent.

So, I already announced while bolting out of the front door this morning, that we were having soup for dinner. At first I was planning chicken vegetable homemade soup, but now I am leaning towards this French shallot soup, with my twist – and yes a slice of bread included.


  • 6 tablespoons salted butter
  • 6 medium shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoon honey or brown sugar.     {exclude for my recipe}
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour   {exclude for my recipe}
  • 1 cup dry white wine, such as Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc
  • 2 quarts low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 6 slices french bread
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyère cheese  {I prefer Munster cheese or mozzarella over Gruyère}
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese  {pass, not a fan of blue cheese}    (more)
