As my first home-made soup, this was delicious, and will be made many more times! Very easy!
Ingredients
3 onions
1/4 cup butter
2 14-oz cans beef broth
1 14-oz can chicken broth
salt and pepper
sliced french bread (or croutons)
1.5 cups Fontina or Gruyere cheese, shredded
 
Directions
1. Peel the onions and cut into 1/8 - 1/4 inch thick rings.
2. Place the butter and onions in a large saucepan.
3. Cook over medium heat for 20 minutes or until the onions begin to brown.
4. Add beef and chicken broth.
5. Let simmer for 30 minutes.
6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
7. Ladle soup into serving bowls.
8. Top ease with a slice of French bread (or croûtons) and sprinkle two tablespoons of cheese over each bread slice. Put soup bowls under broiler until cheese is melted.
9. Alternatively, place the bread slices on a baking sheet and top each with cheese; broil until cheese has melted, about 30 to 40 seconds, and set on top just before serving.
 
Notes:
Serves 6. 

Particularly delicious with my garlic crouton recipe.
