How do they get away with charging extra for something this easy? The soup will only be as good as the beef stock so don't use cheap, salty bullion cubes. Make your own stock or use the kind of good soup base that restaurants use. (Tones brand is available at Sam's Club).

- 1Heat olive oil and butter together in a pan large enough to hold the onions and broth.
- 2Saute onions very gently in half olive oil and half butter until soft and golden but do not allow them to brown.

- 4Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- 5Divide into oven-proof bowls. Float the stale bread on top.
