Classic and simple, this beef-broth based soup features the flavor of caramelized onions topped with grated Swiss and Gruyere cheese melted over the thick cubes of toasted bread.

It's a classic soup that is must for the wintertime. It's a heart warming soup after a long cold day. Our family loves it. It's the butter in sauting to soften (light caramelize) them that makes the soups flavor!
