Onion Soup

  • Hot chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 and 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 and 1/2 loaf day old Italian bread
  • 4 large sweet onions sliced thinly
  • 3/4 to 1 pound grated Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese

Divide butter and onions into two large skillets.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Cook onions until caramelized, about 45 minutes.
Deglaze pans with wine until wine is evaporated.

In a 9x13 pan layer the following:

  • sliced bread
  • some chicken broth
  • 1/2 of the onions
  • 1/3 of the cheese

Repeat layers ending with cheese on top.

Pour broth on top until bread is completely covered.
Place pan on a cookie sheet to catch drips.
Bake bread at 350 for 35 minutes.
Put remaining cheese on top and bake an additional 35 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from oven and cool.
When ready to serve place a square of the onion bread into a bowl and pour reserved hot broth over top.
