Difficulty: Easy - for beginners


1/2 c butter

6c thinly sliced yellow onions

98 oz beef broth

1/2 c dry sherry or dry white wine

2T Worcestershire Sauce

1/2tsp pepper

12 slices of french bread, toasted

8oz Swiss cheese, shredded


1. In a 6-8 quart Dutch oven melt butter, add onions. Cook onions, covered over medium-low heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender & golden, stir occasionally.

2. Stir in broth, sherry, Worcestershire sauce & pepper. Bring to boiling, reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Serve immediately or cool 30 minutes.

3. Toast: Arrange bread on baking sheet. Sprinkle with cheese. Broil 4 inches from heat 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top each serving of soup with toasted bread. Note: I toast ours in the toaster oven. The kids get grilled cheese to go with theirs and just the broth.
