Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large casserole, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally until soft, 5-7 minutes.

  3. Stir in flour to coat onions and cook, stirring, 2-3 minutes.
  4. Gradually add broth, stirring constantly to prevent any lumps from forming.

  6. Add wine, salt and pepper. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 5 minutes.
  7. Make the toasts: Preheat oven to 425*.
  8. Cut garlic cloves in half. Rub bread slices with garlic.
  9. Top each bread slice with cheese. Set on an ungreased baking sheet.
  10. Bake 4-5 minutes until cheese melts.
  11. To serve: ladle soup into bowls and float Jarlsberg Garlic Toast on top.

Very good! A bit on the thin side for me (made a vegetarian soup for friends - I would've preferred beef broth myself) but tasted nice.
