We promise, this French onion soup is better than Grandma’s!
Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
In a small skillet, add the butter and shallots. Cook until the shallots are lightly browned and tender (around 10 minutes). Season with salt and pepper.
Transfer the shallots to a mug and add the coffee, thyme and broth. Top soup with the toast and a slice of brie.
Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes or until cheese has melted.
