    Dantana's Note:

    This recipe has a twin! Be sure to pair it with 'Roasted Tomato Bisque' for a double whammy in the comfort food department. The carmalized onions are perfect with the sharpness of the tomato soup and soft goodness of the cheeses used. A perfect pair if there ever was one! When cooking the onion be sure to let them get nice and brown to maximize flavor!

      As long as you want gourmet fried onion, this is fabulous with Roasted Tomato Bisque from the Sandwich King. DH did not want the onion, so his sandwiches overcooked. If doing without the onion, provolone would be so much better than processed American cheese.
