Kreacher's French Onion Soup | Harry Potter Inspired Recipes
While my version of Kreacher’s French onion soup may be a little far from authentic, I’d like to think he used some sort of elvish magic to create something similar.
- 2-4 cups onions thinnly sliced
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons white wine
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tablespoons flour
- ½ cup beef broth
- 1 can sheet dough or pizza dough
- ½ cup Parmesan cheese shredded
- ½ cup Gruyere cheese shredded
- salt & pepper to taste
Cut each onion lengthwise then thinly slice. Add the sliced onion to a sauce pan with 2 tablespoons of butter over medium high heat. When the onions begin to brown, turn the heat down to a medium. Sautee the onions until they are browned through, or about 30 minutes.
Add the remaining butter to the pan with the onions along with the flour. Scrape up any brown bits then use the white wine to deglaze the pan. Finally pour in the beef broth and bring to a boil for 5 minutes before reducing the heat for an additional 5-10 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Fill ramekins about ¾ full of soup. Cover with cheese. Cut the pizza dough into evenly sized rolls and place two on the top of each ramekin. Bake any leftovers as additional dipping bread!
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the tops of the bread are golden brown. Cool 15 minutes prior to serving. Serve to good witches and wizards (and Muggles, if you must!)
