  • toasted French bread or baguette slices, or croutons
  • 6 tsp. Parmesan cheese
  • 6 slices Gruyere or Provolone cheese
  • parsley

Saute onions in butter until clear. Add seasonings and sherry. Simmer for a few minutes. Add broth and cook for 20 more minutes. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Ladle in 6 oven-proof bowls. Add bread, grated Parmesan cheese and a slice of Gruyere or provolone cheese on top. Bake until cheese is melted and starting to brown.
