Greetings from Indy!

We were supposed to get on a flight to Philadelphia this weekend – bags were packed and we were ready to roll. But as we waited at the gate, the flight kept getting delayed due to “mechanical issues”. I already have anxiety with flying so I grabbed my bags, my corgi and drove back home. And it was the best decision ever.

So instead, we picked up a box of Firecakes Donuts and drove down to Indianapolis to spend Father’s Day with Ben’s family. You know, in the rainstorms and all the tornado warnings. We took cover in his parents’ basement with a box of La Croix, Bud Light, and White Claw.

We were set.

Now in all this Indy downpour, all I can think about is this one pot French onion soup. The perfectly caramenlized onions in the soothing broth topped with the crisp, golden brown baguette slices smothered in all that Gruyere cheese. How can you not be thinking about this, right?

And the best part? You make it in one single pot.

I’m serious. There’s no ladling. There’s no transferring to ramekins. There’s no fuss, no mess.

Nope, you can make everything in an oven-proof Dutch oven/braiser and pop it right in the oven, then serve.

Easy, cozy, comforting, and so so good. Rainstorms or not, this needs to be made. Like now.

15 minutes1 hour 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 12 (3/4-inch-thick) French baguette slices
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 pounds sweet onions, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 6 cups beef stock
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Gruyère cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to broil.
  2. Place baguette slices onto a baking sheet. Place into oven and broil until golden brown on both sides, about 1-2 minutes per side; set aside.
  3. Melt butter in a large oven-proof braiser over medium heat. Add onions, and cook, stirring often, until deep golden brown and caramelized, about 30-40 minutes.* Stir in garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Stir in wine, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the stockpot.
  5. Stir in beef stock, thyme and bay leaves. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly reduced, about 15-20 minutes. Remove and discard thyme sprigs and bay leaves.
  6. Stir in white wine vinegar; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  7. Top with baguette slices to cover the surface of the soup completely; sprinkle with cheeses.
  8. Place into oven and broil until golden brown and cheeses have melted; about 3-5 minutes.
  9. Serve immediately.

Notes:

*If the onions begin to burn on the bottom of the pot, reduce heat slightly and stir in 1/4 cup water.

Skinnytaste Meal Plan (June 17-June 23)

https://www.skinnytaste.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/ST_Weekly_Meal_Template_Jun_17_Jun_23.jpg

A free 7-day flexible weight loss meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner and a shopping list. All recipes include calories and WW SmartPoints®.

A free 7-day flexible weight loss meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner and a shopping list. All recipes include calories and WW SmartPoints®.

If you’re new to my meal plans, I’ve been sharing these free, 7-day flexible healthy meal plans (you can see my previous meal plans here) that are meant as a guide, with plenty of wiggle room for you to add more food, coffee, beverages, fruits, snacks, dessert, wine, etc or swap recipes out for meals you prefer, you can search for recipes by course in the index. You should aim for around 1500 calories* per day.

There’s also a precise, organized grocery list that will make grocery shopping so much easier and much less stressful. Save you money and time. You’ll dine out less often, waste less food and you’ll have everything you need on hand to help keep you on track.

Lastly, if you’re on Facebook join my Skinnytaste Facebook Community where everyone’s sharing photos of recipes they are making, you can join here. I’m loving all the ideas everyone’s sharing! If you wish to get on the email list, you can subscribe here so you never miss a meal plan!

Also, if you don’t have the Skinnytaste Meal Planner, now would be a great time to get one to get organized for 2019! There was a print error last year, but it’s perfect now! You can order it here!

THE DETAILS:

Breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday, are designed to serve 1 while dinners and all meals on Saturday and Sunday are designed to serve a family of 4. Some recipes make enough leftovers for two nights or lunch the next day. While we truly believe there is no one size fits all meal plan, we did our best to come up with something that appeals to a wide range of individuals. Everything is Weight Watchers friendly, I included the updated Weight Watcher Freestyle Points for your convenience, feel free to swap out any recipes you wish or just use this for inspiration!

The grocery list is comprehensive and includes everything you need to make all meals on the plan. I’ve even included brand recommendations of products I love and use often. Cross check your cabinets because many condiments you’ll notice I use often, so you may already have a lot of them.

And last, but certainly not least, this meal plan is flexible and realistic. There’s plenty of wiggle room for cocktails, healthy snacks, dessert and dinner out. And if necessary, you can move some things around to make it work with your schedule. Please let me know if you’re using these plans, this will help me decide if I should continue sharing them!
