French Onion Soup with Homemade Croutons

This easy savory French onion soup has homemade croutons topped with melty gruyére cheese.

In a large Dutch oven or stockpot, sauté onions until they are deeply caramelized.

Add minced garlic and sauté until they are softened and beginning to brown.

Pour in the wine and use a wooden spoon to scrape up any bits on the bottom of the pot.

Add flour and cook until the flour is fully absorbed and cooked through.

Pour in the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, fresh thyme, and a bay leaf. Simmer for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, toast bread cubes in the oven until golden brown and crispy.

Place broiler-safe bowls on a baking sheet, fill with soup, and top with the bread cubes.

Top with freshly grated gruyére cheese. Broil for 3 to 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown.

Top with fresh thyme and serve warm.  Enjoy!
