    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.

    1. 1
      Sauté 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.
    2. 2
      Add beef broth, salt and garlic powder to onions.
    3. 3
      Bring 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.
    4. 4
      When 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.
    5. 5
      Build 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.
    6. 6
      Place a slice of mozzarella on next and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of shredded parmesan cheese over the top of the other cheeses.
    7. 7
      Place the soup bowl on a baking sheet and broil for 5 to 6 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown.

      YUM:) Next time I will cut add 2 onions instead of 3, and simmer covered so not so much broth cooks off... also I will omit the parmesan that goes the soup--it was good with it, but I don't think it needs it. But still an amazing recipe, I will be making it again!

      This was excellent! We used the base recipe, and modified it a bit. We only used 2 cans of beef broth and 2 yellow onions. In addition, we added a few dashes of worcestershire sauce to taste when we mixed in the soup and seasonings. We thought this made a big difference in enhancing the flavor of the soup. We also used provolone cheese on top, as that was what we had on hand, and it was excellent. Thanks for a great recipe that we will make again and again!!

      This soup turned out really good. I made it using Better than Bouillon beef stock base. I used that instead of the beef stock in the cans. It has a much richer, better flavor. Next time I will use the same beef stock base but I would add another 8oz. of water. It will make the soup a little bit thinner. I thought that at the end there was a bit too much onion and not enough soup. That should be perfect. Cheeses tasted great together. Make sure you toast the baguette rounds before melting the cheese over them. Perfect!!!
