Cheesy Onion Soup with Rye Croutons
Warm up your heart and soul with this ever-smooth soup that will leave you both satisfied and speechless. Made with a seemingly simple ingredient list, this creamy soup packs a ton of flavor and comfort into each hearty bowl. Slightly smoky, thanks to bacon, and incredibly creamy from both half-and-half and Colby Jack cheese, this soup is simply delicious.
OFF HEAT, STIR IN:
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; add bread and cook until toasted, stirring often, 5 minutes. Season croutons with salt, pepper, thyme, and garlic powder.
Cook bacon in a pot until crisp; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and reserve drippings. Increase heat to medium-high.
Whisk in broth and half-and-half in four additions, allowing soup to thicken after each addition. Bring soup to a simmer, whisking constantly.
Off heat, stir in bacon and sage; season soup with salt and pepper. Top servings with croutons and chives.
