directions

  • In a large skillet, saute onions in butter until brown.
  • Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar and white wine. Stir constantly until mixture is reduced by about 80 percent. Watch carefully that it doesn't turn to caramel!
  • Add reduction to large pan with beef consomme.
  • Bring to a boil and stir in the sauted onions, salt and pepper.
  • Simmer for 30 minutes.
  • For maximum flavor, this soup is better if you immediately cool and then reheat just before serving.
  • To serve, spoon 6 to 8 ounes of soup in an ovenproof bowl, place a slice of sourdough bread over the soup and sliced swiss cheese over the bread.
  • Place under broiler until the cheese is melted.
  • Serve immediately.
