  • 2 large sweet onions, sliced

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  • 4 cup reduced-sodium beef broth

  • 1 tablespoon dry sherry (optional)

  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 8 slices French bread, toasted

  • 2 cup shredded Gruyère cheese (8 oz.)

  • Snipped fresh thyme (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place onions in a 13x9-inch baking pan. Drizzle with oil and melted butter and sprinkle with garlic, salt, and pepper; toss to coat. Roast 45 to 50 minutes or until very tender and light brown, stirring occasionally.

  2. Carefully pour 1 cup of the broth into pan, stirring to scrape up any crusty brown bits. Transfer mixture to a large saucepan. Add remaining 3 cups broth, sherry (if desired), and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 20 minutes.

  3. Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place bread slices on prepared baking sheet; sprinkle with cheese. Broil 4 inches from heat 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is light brown. Serve soup topped with bread slices and, if desired, additional cheese and/or thyme.

Make It Vegan

Substitute olive oil for the butter and desired soy cheese for the Gruyère cheese.
