DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat.
  • Stir in salt, red onions and sweet onions.
  • Cook 35 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are caramelized and almost syrupy.
  • Mix chicken broth, beef broth, red wine and Worcestershire sauce into pot.
  • Bundle the parsley, thyme, and bay leaf with twine and place in pot.
  • Simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove and discard the herbs.
  • Reduce the heat to low, mix in vinegar and season with salt and pepper.
  • Cover and keep over low heat to stay hot while you prepare the bread.
  • Preheat oven broiler.
  • Arrange bread slices on a baking sheet and broil 3 minutes, turning once, until well toasted on both sides.
  • Remove from heat; do not turn off broiler.
  • Arrange 4 large oven safe bowls or crocks on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Fill each bowl 2/3 full with hot soup.
  • Top each bowl with 1 slice toasted bread, 2 slice Gruyere cheese and 1/4 of the Asiago or mozzarella cheese.
  • Sprinkle a little bit of paprika over the top of each one.
  • Broil 5 minutes, or until bubbly and golden brown.
  • As it softens, the cheese will cascade over the sides of the crock and form a beautifully melted crusty seal.
  • Serve immediately!
