French onion soup

Serves   4
Prep time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 1 hr 30 mins

A classically warming soup with wonderfully caramelised onion and rich savoury flavours all topped off with slices of cheesy bread. It’s the ultimate comforting bowl that just gets better with every spoonful!





  • 50g Pams pure butter, diced 
  • 5 - 6 brown onions, thinly sliced 
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1.5L salt reduced beef stock 
  • 2 Tbsp Pams Plain Flour 
  • Fresh thyme 
  • ½ baguette, sliced and toasted
  • 1 cup Pams Tasty Grated Cheese


  1. In a large pot, melt the butter with a generous drizzle of olive oil over a medium low heat. Add the onions, and cook while stirring occasionally for 30 minutes or until the onions have softened. 
  2. Season the onions with salt, stir in the garlic and increase to a medium heat. Cook while stirring more frequently for 20 minutes, until golden and caramelised. 
  3. Deglaze the pan with half a cup of the stock, then stir in the flour. Stir in the rest of the stock, add the thyme, then bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 20 minutes.
  4. Preheat your oven to 220°C. Season the soup to taste, then ladle into oven safe bowls. Top with a few slices of toasted baguette, then sprinkle cheese over the top. 
  5. Grill until the cheese has melted, then serve while hot!
