Recipe Directions

Set oven to broil.

In your Larder & Vine Dutch Oven over medium heat, melt butter and sauté onions for about 30 to 40 minutes. Stir often until caramelized.

Add in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Stir in wine and scrape the bottom of your Dutch Oven.

Add beef broth, thyme, and bay leaves, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer. Stir occasionally until reduced, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove thyme sprigs and bay leaves.

Stir in balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Evenly place the baguette slices on top and sprinkle cheese over top to cover the baguette slices.

Broil in oven for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Serve immediately and enjoy!
