Baked Onion Soup

No recipe image available.A fairly quick and easy homemade onion soup ladled over slices of toasted French bread, then topped with sliced Swiss cheese and baked just to melt the cheese.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 tablespoons butter or margarine
6 cups sliced peeled onions
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
6 cups beef broth
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 pound French bread, sliced and toasted
6 ounces Swiss cheese, sliced
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Melt butter in a heavy stockpot; sauté onions over medium-low heat until light brown, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle flour over onions. Stir in beef broth, vinegar, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
  4. Place toasted slices of French bread in oven-safe serving bowls. Ladle soup over bread and place a slice of Swiss cheese on top of each bowl. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake until cheese has melted, about 5 minutes. Serve hot.
