Pot Scrubber's Note:
Everyone knows by now how much I hate Edith Gump but love her cooking. I only pretend to like her and take her phone calls so she will share her delicious recipes. This onion soup is ambrosia in a bowl.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Sauté onions in melted butter in a large soup pot or saucepan for 15 to 20 minutes or until onions begin to brown and turn transparent.
- 2Add beef broth, salt and garlic powder to onions.
- 3Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 1 hour. Add the grated parmesan cheese in the last 10 minutes of cooking the soup.
- 4When soup is done, preheat oven to 350 degrees and toast the French bread slices for about 10 to 12 minutes or until they begin to brown. When bread is done, set oven to broil.
- 5Build each serving of soup by spooning about 1 cup of soup into an oven-safe bowl. Float a toasted slice or two of bread on top of the soup, then add a slice of Swiss cheese on top of that.
- 6Place a slice of mozzarella on next and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of shredded parmesan cheese over the top of the other cheeses.
- 7Place the soup bowl on a baking sheet and broil for 5 to 6 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown.
