Caramelized French Onion Soup

Caramelized onions give a touch of sweetness to this popular soup, topped with toasted cheese bread. It's an easy version of an updated classic.


2 servings


1 medium onion, sliced
1 tablespoon butter
1 to 2 teaspoons granulated (white) sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/3 cups beef broth
1 tablespoon white wine or water
coarsely ground pepper to taste
2 slices French bread (1 inch thick)
1/3 cup shredded Swiss cheese
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


In a saucepan, sauté onion in butter until tender. Sprinkle with sugar and Worcestershire sauce; cook and stir for 13 to 15 minutes or until onion is caramelized.

Add the broth, wine or water and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Place bread on an ungreased baking sheet. Broil 4 inches from the heat until toasted. Turn; sprinkle with cheeses. Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly. Ladle soup into bowls; top with toast.
