French Onion Soup

Submitted by: HEATSKITCHEN


Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 teaspoons olive oil
    4 cups thinly vertically sliced sweet onion
    4 cups thinly vertically sliced red onion
    1/2 teaspoon sugar
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup dry white wine
    8 cups less-sodium beef broth
    1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
    8 (1-ounce) slices French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
    8 (1-ounce) slices reduced-fat, reduced-sodium Swiss cheese

Directions

Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onions to pan; sauté for 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in sugar, pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Reduce heat to medium; cook 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Increase heat to medium-high, and sauté for 5 minutes or until onion is golden brown. Stir in wine, and cook for 1 minute. Add broth and thyme; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 2 hours.
Preheat broiler.
Place bread in a single layer on a baking sheet; broil 2 minutes or until toasted, turning after 1 minute.
Place 8 ovenproof bowls on a jelly-roll pan. Ladle 1 cup soup into each bowl. Divide bread evenly among bowls; top each serving with 1 cheese slice. Broil 3 minutes or until cheese begins to brown.
