French Onion Soup Bites


3 tablespoons canola oil

2 pounds sweet onions (about 2 large), thinly sliced (about 8 cups)

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon granulated sugar 

½ teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons dry sherry

1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves

8 ounces Gruyère cheese, shredded (about 2 cups), divided

2 (1.9-oz.) pkg. frozen mini phyllo pastry shells (15 cups in each pkg.)

1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives


Step 1 Heat oil in a large skillet over medium. Add onions, salt, sugar, and pepper; cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring often, until onions are golden brown and very tender, about 25 minutes. Stir in sherry, parsley, and thyme; cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 3/4 cups of the cheese; set aside.

Step 2 Preheat oven to 350°F. Place phyllo shells on a baking sheet, and fill each with about 1 tablespoon of the onion mixture; top each cup with some of the remaining cheese. Bake in preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Place on a serving platter, and sprinkle with chives. Serve hot.
