Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook butter until foamy. Stir in onions and cook a couple of minutes, then reduce heat, stir in salt, cover and cook very slowly until very tender, 60 minutes.
  2. Transfer onions and their caramel to a larger pot and place it over medium heat. Pour in the wine and bring to a boil. Stir in chicken broth, pepper and nutmeg and simmer gently, uncovered, 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in shredded cheese until melted (cheese will remain a little stringy). Serve.

Simply the best soup I've ever made! Every one I've served it to has raved. Thank you!

I was so excited by the prospect of this soup. Kind of a subtle French Onion with the wonderful Gruyere cheese incorporated into the broth. I followed the directions as they appear, but you'll notice there is no time line between once you've added the cheese and let it melt~~ to how quickly you serve it!! My timing was obviously OFF because I ended up with an un-workable glop of cheese. I wonder if adding a bit of corn starch to the shredded cheese (similar to fondue) before adding to the broth would help keep the consistency smooth. As is, this is a disappointing mess. I may try it one more time, w/ the addition of corn starch~~ and really serve Immediately!

I like this recipe but it wasn't what I wanted. I guess I'm looking for a 'cream of onion soup with cheese'. But this recipe had a good flavor and would probably make again.
