Onion and Bacon Soup

Category: Soups

 Ingredients List

  • 6 slices bacon, cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 large yellow onions, halved and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 6 baguette slices (1 inch thick)
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Gruyere cheese


In a medium Dutch oven or heavy pot, cook bacon over medium-high, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon fat from pot (reserve for another use). Add onions, and reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up browned bits from pot with a wooden spoon, until onions are very soft and deep golden brown, about 1 hour (reduce heat if onions are overbrowning). Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
Heat broiler, with rack in top position. With a ladle, transfer soup into six 8-ounce broilerproof baking dishes set on a rimmed baking sheet. Top each with a baguette slice and 1/4 cup grated cheese. Transfer sheet to oven and broil until cheese is melted and browned in spots, about 3 minutes. Serve immediately.
