This is another old recipe and picture, I clipped from a magazine 30 years ago,and saved in my Soup Box.
You start with sliced onions then canned broth. Simmered on top of the stove, then under the broiler.
What could be simpler? and packed with great flavor.
I have enjoyed it many times, and I hope you will also.

***Note: I was out of French bread,
so I had used rye bread, cut in half..
It was great with the added rye bread taste.
Try it sometime.
My favorite crunchy rye bread is made by Holsem.

***My friend made the recipe times four.
For 8 cups of this soup, put it in a casserole dish, then under the broiler with the bread and cheese, for her Thur. afternoon bridge club.
Her guests gave it ..5 stars!!
