This morning in The Rhode Show kitchen we welcomed Chef Noah of Courtland Club.

Chef Noah made Open Faced French Onion Soup Sandwich


2ea Large Spanish/Yellow onions

2tsp Chopped thyme

2tsp Chopped rosemary

1tsp Freshly ground black pepper

2tsp Kosher Salt

32floz Water

Scraps from cutting onions

1ea Chopped carrot

2ea Chopped celery stalks

1cup Burgundy wine

1tbsp Kosher salt

Thyme stems

Rosemary stems

1-2cups Shredded gruyere cheese

2ea 3/4inch thick slices Your favorite crusty bread (country style bread, sourdough, baguette, etc)

1) Thinly slice both large onions, place into a medium sized mixing bowl. Combine with thyme, rosemary, salt, black pepper, and a splash of olive oil.

2) Toss together, making sure seasoning is incorporated evenly.

3) In a large saute pan, cook the onions on medium heat, stirring regularly, until they reach a dark caramel color. Remove from heat.

4) In a large pot, saute the onion scraps, chopped carrot, chopped celery, salt, thyme and rosemary stems. Cook until fragrant then deglaze the pot with the burgundy wine.

5) Cook until only half of the wine is left, then add the water. Cook until that has reduced by half, then strain. You can discard the veggie scraps, just save the liquid.

6) Toast your bread slices until golden brown, then place them on a rimmed baking sheet.

7) Spread an even layer of sautéed onions across each slice of toast, then ladle about 4-6 ounces of your liquid across each slice. Top with shredded gruyere cheese and cook under a broiler until the cheese starts to brown, you could also choose to bake it for about 8 minutes at 500.

8) Enjoy! You can choose to garnish this however you’d like. Traditionally French Onion Soup is garnished with chopped parsley, but you could use chervil, tarragon, really whatever you like.
