Onion Panade Recipe from “Poor Man’s Feast” By Elissa Altman

There could be nothing to eat in the houseโ€”no meat, no fish, no chicken, no pasta, no rice, no nothingโ€”but if you have a big onion, some leftover bread, some cheese, and some broth of any kind, youโ€™ve got the makings for this dish, which is peasant food at its finest. Anyone who knows soupe a lโ€™oignon gratinรฉe understands that itโ€™s just an excuse to eat the soup-soaked bread, and bubbly, crunchy brown cheese that cascades over the sides of the bowl. This onion panade is exactly that: unctuously delicious onion soup, without the soup.
