Directions

In a heavy sauce pan, sauté the onions, mushrooms and garlic in the butter, being careful not to brown. Add the wine and reduce until almost dry. Add the flour and create a roux, cooking over low heat for a few minutes. Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil and cook until a proper consistency is achieved. Reduce heat to a simmer and add the cream and thyme. Allow to simmer for a few moments and strain the soup. Return to the pot and heat. Once simmering again, add the 6 oz. of Brie and whisk until smooth. Add the sherry and adjust seasonings. Pour the soup into bowls. Top with two croutons and a slice of Brie. Place under broiler to melt Brie, being careful not to burn. Serve at once.
