French Onion Soup

Serves 6


2 tablespoons butter
3 large onions, peeled, sliced
1 can beef broth
3 cups cold water
1 bay leaf
6 slices French bread, toasted
1 cup Shredded Swiss Cheese
1/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese


- Melt butter in large skillet on medium heat.

- Add onions; cook about 15 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently.

- Add broth, water and bay leaf; stir. Cover; simmer 15 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf.

- Preheat broiler. Ladle hot soup evenly into 6 ovenproof bowls; top each bowl of soup with a toast slice. Sprinkle evenly with cheeses.

- Broil 5 to 10 minutes or until cheese is golden brown.



For a milder cheese flavor, substitute Shredded Mozzarella Cheese for the Swiss cheese.
