  • 3 large sweet onions, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon basil, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 111.2 oz. bottle of Guinness
  • 1½ cup beef broth
  • 1½ cup vegetable broth

  • 2 bay leaves
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices of Texas Toast, toasted
  • 2 cups of Shredded Kerry Gold, Reserve Aged Cheddar
  • garnish basil or chives, chopped
  1. Melt the butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat, add the onions and cook until completely caramelized and golden brown, about 1 hour, mixing every 10 minutes
  2. Use Guinness to deglaze the pan as needed to prevent burning.
  3. Add the garlic and basil and cook for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the butter, let it melt, mix in the flour and let it cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the Guinness and deglaze the pan.
  6. In a pot, combine broth, Worcestershire sauce, grainy mustard, bay leaves, salt and pepper, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Add the onions.
  7. Ladle the soup into oven-proof bowls on a baking sheet, top with the sliced texas toast and cheese and broil until cheese melts, about 1-3 minutes.
  8. Garnish with basil or chives!
