25 Minutes | Serves 2-4


  • 4 cups
    vegetable stock
  • 3
    yellow onions
  • Grapeseed oil, as needed
  • 1/4 cup
    sherry vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp.
    Worcestershire sauce
  • Kosher salt, as needed
  • Baguette, sliced
  • 1 cup
    gruyere cheese, grated
  • 32
    slices of Swiss cheese


  • Cast-iron skillet
  • Sheet pan


Step 1

Reduce the vegetable stock by half.

Step 2

Slice the onions to 1/2-inch thick slices. Heat a thin layer of grapeseed oil on a heavy-bottomed pot or dutch oven on medium heat. Add the onion slices, breaking up the layers as you scatter them into the pot. Stir frequently so the onion cooks slowly and evenly, about 7-8 minutes.

Step 3

Deglaze the pan with sherry vinegar and reduce by half. Add the reduced vegetable stock and Worchestershire sauce. Adjust seasoning to taste. Cook on low for another 5-6 minutes.

Step 4

Meanwhile, place four ramekins on a sheet pan. Slice the baguette so it fits in the individual ramekins. Place a slice of baguette and frozen Original Daring Pieces in each ramekin. Fill the ramekin with onions and broth. Cover with gruyere and 8 overlapping slices of Swiss cheese on each ramekin.
