I got this off the internet somewhere and it looked very tempting. I haven't tried this yet, so it's here for safekeeping!

Very good. I used oregano instead of the chervil. After step 7 toasting the bread slices under broiler until golden brown I rub garlic on the bread then proceeded with this yummy recipe. I sauteed the onions with a bit of sugar to get them carmelized. Thanks for a great recipe.
