      In a big saucepan, melt the butter; add the onions, salt and pepper, and mustard.

      Note: can be made in the crock-pot and cooked on LOW all day after the ingredients are browned.
    7. 7
      To serve: place French bread slices in oven-proof bowls, add cheeses over the bread.
    8. 8
      Pour soup over the bread and place bowls under the broiler until the cheese melts.

      Great recipe... easy to make and tasty with a bit of zing to it. I've made it three times now and it still tstes great Careful with the wine though.

      I used this recipe to figure out how to add and cook the bread and cheese! I didn't have time to make the soup and used Progresso French Onion Soup in a can. Nevertheless, your technique for broiling the cheese and bread worked perfectly! I would have never thought to put the bread first, then the cheese, then pour the soup. I put a just a little cheese on top of the soup too. Boars Head Imported Swiss was very zesty and flavorful. My husband loved this. I put the bowl into the toaster oven and it browned beautifully. Thank you very much.

      Fantastic dish. It has become a family favorite. Skipped on the wine. Still was great.
