In my opinion, these stuffed potatoes are way better than the French Onion Soup. So much going on inside and outside these potatoes. A pretty simple, not fussy potato dish that is filled with caramelized onions. Mouthwatering, super savory, and outrageously delicious! Make your ordinary baked potatoes into something extraordinary. Excellent side dish alongside steaks, chops, and many more. All the goodness in a stuffed potato that is baked in perfection and top with gruyere cheese and more caramelized onions. This dish is a must-try and to keep.


4 large baked potatoes
4 tablespoons butter
4 onions, halved and thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 cup sherry or dry white wine
1 cup beef stock
2 cups Gruyere cheese, grated
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

How to make French Onion Stuffed Potatoes

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F.

Step 2: Add butter in a large skillet. Melt over medium-high heat.

Step 3: Sautee the onions and season with salt, pepper, and thyme. Slowly cook while occasionally stirring until the onions are very soft and caramel-colored.

Step 4: Using a sherry and wine, deglaze the pan. Then, pour the stock into the pan and bring to a low boil. Allow the liquid to evaporate, cook for about 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 5: In the meantime, slice the top third of the potatoes and scoop the flesh. Place in a medium bowl and add in half of the onion mixture. Stir to incorporate.

Step 6: Fill the potato shells and transfer them on a baking sheet.

Step 7: Top each shell with the rest of the onions and gruyere cheese.

Step 8: Place inside the preheated oven and bake until the cheese has melted. If you want more color, broil the potatoes on high for at least a minute.

Step 9: Serve and enjoy!
