Flying French Onion Soup




  • ½ cup (1 stick) MagicalButter
  • 5 cups fortified beef broth
  • 4 cups onions, sliced
  • ¼ cup bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons beef base
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste




  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Italian croutons
How To
  1. In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, melt the MagicalButter.  
  2. Add the onions, salt, and pepper, and stir thoroughly. Reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 10-12 minutes.
  3. Place ⅓ of the cooked onions inside your MagicalButter machine, setting the rest aside.
  4. Add the broth, thyme, salt, pepper, and sherry (if desired) to the machine, and secure the lid.
  5. Press the Temperature button, and select 190°F; then, press the 1 Hour/Oil button.
  6. After 30 minutes, unplug the power cord from the machine to stop the cycle.
  7. Portion out your remaining onions into oven-safe bowls. Add soup from the pitcher to each bowl, and top with croutons and cheeses.
  8. Place the bowls into your oven broiler, and broil until a deep golden brown color emerges.
  9. Remove your Flying French Onion Soup from the broiler, serve immediately, and enjoy!
