Something out of nothing

So the Chef had made a braised Pot Roast with Guinness Stout and the leftover stock was just too good to throw out.  What to do?  How about Deconstructed French Onion Soup !

All you need is Onions, Beef Stock, Swiss cheese and Bread.

Slice 4 large onions and saute in 1/4# (one stick) of butter until golden brown.   

Deglaze pan with 1 Cup of stock.  If  you don’t have Beef Stock you may substitute canned Beef Consume or Beef Soup Base. Bread should be a crusty Artisan (homemade Ciabatta).  Cut into 3/4″ slices and toast or broil both sides until brown.  Heat Stock to high simmer.

To assemble, place sliced Swiss cheese on toast and broil until melted.  Cut into dippable pieces.  Place toast, sautéed onions and a cup of stock on platter.  Eat, Dip, Slurp and Enjoy!  Something out of nothing. Beverage suggestion: Guinness Stout.
