Whole wheat bread: 8 slices
Thyme: 1 teaspoon
Chicken stock: 4 cups
Butter: 1 oz
Saint Albray Cheese: 4 oz
Finely mince the onions. Slightly brown the butter over very low heat for 10 minutes. Add
the onions, chicken stock, salt and thyme. Simmer gently for 45 minutes.
In an oven, grill the slices of bread. In the last moment, add a slice of St. Albray on each
piece of bread. Allow the cheese to melt a few minutes in the oven.
Pour the soup into soup bowls and layer with the grilled cheese slices. Also, add some of
the St. Albray to the soup.
Enjoy it warm.
