DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a large pot.
  • Saute garlic slices and chopped marjoram 2 minutes.
  • Add the onion slices and cook about 5 minutes (or longer if you like them very soft).
  • Add wine and broth and cook, uncovered, 10 minutes at a gentle simmer (bubbling, but not boiling).
  • Meanwhile, heat up your broiler and line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Using a 6 cm round biscuit cutter, cut bread slices into rounds (discard excess)- you may also use a glass.
  • Set bread rounds on foil lined pan and sprinkle with cheese and broil only about 1 minute- just to melt cheese.
  • Test soup- season well with salt and pepper.
  • Soup is ready when onions are tender- broth will be very clear& pinkish in color.
  • Ladle into bowls and float a bread round on top of each bowlful, garnishing with some extra fresh marjoram if desired.
