DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare the onion soup according to the can directions.
  • Cut the bread into 1 inch thick slices shaped to fit into the top of an onion soup bowl. Toast on both sides.
  • If desired, stir an alcohol based spirit into the soup (my favourite is cognac).
  • Ladle the soup into two onion soup bowls. Top with toasted rounds.
  • Spread grated cheese on top of the toast; place under broiler.
  • Broil until the cheese is melted and golden. Serve immediately.
