This is one of the easiest soups to make. It is great for a first course for a special occasion as it can be made ahead and just finished in the oven before serving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saute' pan melt butter with olive oil and saute' onions until golden brown.
  2. Combine both broths and sherry in a large pot and bring to a boil.
  3. Combine sugar and flour and sprinkle over onions stirring to combine. (To help prevent clumping place flour mixture in a mesh strainer and use to shake over onions.).
  4. Add onions to broth and simmer covered for 1 hour stirring occasionally salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Ladle soup into crocks and place a slice of bread and cheese on top. (To make it easier to eat the bread can be cut into bite size pieces before putting on soup.).
  6. Bake in 350 oven for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted.

This is really good! I made 2 crocks worth and it was the perfect amount for our lunch. It was thicker than any french onion I have had before, but it was a nice change. Served with a slice of rustic sourdough and mozzarella cheese. Made for PAC Fall 2011.

I was craving some really good French onion soup with gooey cheese, and this hit the spot. Aside from waiting 1 hour to simmer, it's very quick and easy to make. I used a mixture of provolone and swiss cheese for the cheese topping. Thanx for sharing. This was excellent.
