Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout French Onion Soup

Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout French Onion Soup

It’s coming to the end of National Soup Month, so why wouldn’t you want to get a little out of control?


Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout French Onion Soup


I get it that everyone is trying to make a fresh start, eat healthy, and exercise, but let’s just take a break. It won’t kill you to indulge in some Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout caramelized onions, deglazed and simmered with more of the same stout beer and a bit of beef consomme for extra richness. It would be a shame not to drop in some baguettes then smother the top with gruyere cheese and broil in the oven until it’s golden, gooey, and bubbly.  Then grab a beer, curl up by the fireplace, and faceplant into some warm, cheesy soup.

NOTES:

  1. I used Monstro Russian Imperial Stout from NoDa Brewing Company here in Charlotte
  2. This recipe will make 2 large entree servings or 4 small side dish servings
  3. Use as much or as little cheese as you want
  4. Be careful when serving because these are finished in the oven and the bowls will be hot

  1. Oh man, stout-glazed caramelized onions? You’ve got my attention, Rachelle! I would love to curl up on the couch with a bowl of this soup. And a beer. Coincidentally, I spent yesterday morning shoveling 3″ of ice/sleet out of my driveway. That means it’s all clear for you to bring a nice hot batch of this soup up! 🙂

  2. Lucky for me I don’t do resolutions. I make one goal every new year – be the best version of me I can possibly be. And I’m thinking the best version of me needs this freakin’ fabulous french onion soup! Seriously, Rach, send napkins because I’m DROOLING! Beer in my french onion soup?! YES please!! Pinned! Cheers, lovely! xo

  3. What’s this business with making a fresh start, eating healthy, and exercising? I must have missed that memo! lol! That stout looks unbelievable! J’s favorite soup is french onion and he would love your version. I’ll have to surprise him and make it soon 🙂

  4. Soup is all I’m craving now! This looks insanely flavorful! Love the stout in here! I’m diving in! 🙂
