Applebee’s(™) French Onion Soup

Today I have a secret recipe for one of the best tasting onion soups around.  Applebee’s makes an amazing French onion soup.  The combination of the sweet onions, the piping hot broth and the crunchy bread with melted cheese on top is just irresistible!  This soup freezes well so feel free to make a huge pot of it.

Applebee’s(™) French Onion Soup

2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
10 cups sliced white onions (6 or 7 large onions)
1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste as desired
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped garlic
10 cups low-sodium beef broth
1 tablespoon beef base
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
8 slices firm bread
8 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
8 tablespoons or slices of Provolone cheese

In a large stockpot over medium heat, first heat the butter and oil, then add the sliced onions and salt; saute the onions until they are browned. This will take up to 30 minutes; you want the onions to have the color of caramels. Stir frequently to prevent burning.

When the Onions are almost fully caramelized, add the chopped garlic. Cook the onion and garlic together until the garlic has become fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add beef broth, beef base, and black pepper. Taste and add more salt if needed. Simmer for 30 to 45 minutes over low heat.

To serve soup, preheat the oven to broil. Ladle soup into 8 individual ovenproof bowls, place a slice of bread on top of each, add top each slice with 1 teaspoon Parmesan cheese, and provolone cheese. Place under the broiler and cook until the cheese just begins to brown.

Gourdoughs ODB Donut Holes

Dough:
1 1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 egg

Pastry Cream:
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cake flour (regular flour will work too)
1/2 tsp salt
4 egg yolks
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract)
6 tbs heavy cream

Glaze:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tbs butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
2-4 tbs warm water

Oil for frying
2 cups shredded coconut for rolling

Make the Pastry Cream:

In a small bowl whisk flour, sugar, and salt together.

In another bowl, gently whisk egg yolks together. Slowly whisk flour mixture into egg yolks.

In a medium saucepan, warm the milk over medium heat until bubbles start to form around the edges.

Remove from heat and slowly pour egg/flour mixture into the milk, whisking continuously. Let the mixture come to a boil (still whisking). Let boil for 5-10 seconds then remove from heat.

Should be thick and creamy. Pour the cream through a mesh sieve into a small bowl (gets rid of any filmy stuff) and whisk in vanilla bean paste.

Cover with plastic wrap, pressing onto the cream. Refrigerate for 4-6 hours.

Make the dough: In a large bowl beat flour, sugar, baking powder, egg and vanilla together until dough forms. The dough will be slightly sticky.

Make the donuts:
Pour 1″ of oil into a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan and heat to just under medium heat.

Lightly coat hands with flour, then pinch off 1/2 inch round pieces of dough, roll until smooth and then drop into oil.

Let fry until bottom side is golden, then flip and fry until the other side is golden as well. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a plate covered with paper towels. Once all the dough is fried, make the glaze.

Make the glaze:
Whisk butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. Slowly whisk in 1 tbs of warm water at a time, until you reach a runny, glaze-like consistency.

Roll donut holes in glaze & coconut:
Place shredded coconut on a large plate or shallow bowl.

Using two spoons roll each donut hole in the glaze, letting any excess run off, then roll each hole in the shredded coconut. Place on a sheet of wax paper to dry.

Prep the Cream Filling:
Beat 6 tablespoons of heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold whipped cream into the chilled pastry cream. Pour into a pastry bag with a thin round tip.

Fill donut holes:
Use a toothpick to poke a hole in each of the donut holes and gently move around to create a cavity for the cream filling.

Fill each cavity with cream filling.

Starbucks(™) Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino

Today I have another secret recipe for a sweet beverage served at Starbucks.  If you love strawberries, then the strawberries and cream Frappuccino is just for you.  The best part is that it couldn’t be easier to recreate this drink at home.

This recipe calls for xanthan gum which is used to thicken the drink and help prevent it from separating after blending.  This ingredient can be found in most well-stocked supermarkets.  If you’re unable to get xantham gum, you can omit it from the recipe and It will not affect the flavor.

Enjoy!
