Swiss Cheese Onion Soup

I have been eating a lot of soup lately.  Cream soups are my comfort food for cold wintry days!  Please note the cook times 30-40 minutes to prepare.
Swiss Cheese Onion Soup
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 cups thinly-sliced onions
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth(or you can use beef, or veggie)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • Buttered bread

Melt butter in large saucepan.
Cook onions over medium heat for about 10 minutes. 
Stir in chicken broth. Bring to boil. Cover and simmer 15 minutes.
Whisk flour and milk in a measuring cup. 
Stir milk mix into onion mixture.  Cook on medium heat until soup comes to a boil and thickens.
While cooking cut bread into the shape of the bowl and butter.  (Save crusts in freezer to use for bread crumbs when needed)
Remove from heat. Stir in 3/4 cup of the cheese until melted. 
Ladle into oven-proof soup bowls. 
Top with bread butter side up.  sprinkle with with remaining cheese
Broil until bread is toasted!
Yummy!

GUESS WHO MADE THIS SOUP TONIGHT? Me! and Guess Who LOVED IT? ME AND MY HUBBY! A wonderful recipe that will go in the recipe box! I loved it!!

Funny, I realized I had given away my old soup crocks so I went out to find some at WalMart today.. nothin! So, I changed it a little and just put it in a big oven proof bowl instead of the individual bowls.. Worked out just fine. I used the Beef Broth and had some partially stale Garlic Bread which I used.. It was scrumptious! Thank you again for the recipe!

Leslie - I am so happy you liked it! I did the same thing with giving away my soup crocks...so I used little ramekins. I love thrift shopping so they are on my list of finds!
