Recipe by evelynathens

We loved this as a reasonably-quick, mightily-delicious dinner. From Canadian Living - so it's tested until perfect.

Made this for DH and I so I cut the recipe in half and wish I would have left the full amount...I wanted some the next day! This was really quite easy and delicious. I followed the directions using beef broth and adding dry sherry. Definately a keeper. Made for New Kids on the Block. Thank you for submitting the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook onions, garlic, sugar, thyme and bay leaf, stirring occasionally, until onions are very soft and starting to brown, about 20 minutes.
  2. Add mushrooms, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until well browned, about 10 minutes. Add sherry; cook, scraping up browned bits, until no liquid remains.
  3. Add broth and 1/2 cup (125 mL) water; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Discard bay leaf.
  4. Meanwhile, sprinkle cheese over bread slices; broil on baking sheet until golden, about 3 minutes. Ladle soup into bowls; top with croutes.
