Directions

Preheat the broiler. Saute the onions in the oil over medium heat until tender and caramelized, 45 minutes. Add the garlic and Swiss chard and saute until wilted, 4 minutes, then add the thyme, salt, pepper and bay leaf. Sprinkle over the flour and cook for a few minutes more, browning the flour well. Add the broth and wine and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer gently for about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, spray the baguette slices with nonstick cooking spray. Toast the slices on a griddle until golden brown. Mix together the cheeses.

Ladle the soup into 4 ovenproof bowls. Add the toasted bread and cover each with 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture. Place the bowls on a baking sheet lined with tin foil. Place under the broiler until the cheese has melted and is slightly brown, about 2 minutes.

    I like to write positive reviews. Unfortunately this is not going to be one. My husband and I were so looking forward to tonight's meal of freshly baked whole wheat Italian Rustic bread and a bowl of this onion soup... The bread was FABULOUS!! THE SOUP WAS AWFUL!!!!! I am so sorry that I wasted my time, money, delicious sweet Valdia Onions and all the other ingredients on this... WHAT A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!!!

    This is the first of Bobby's recipes that I have made. It is awesome! Two small changes - (1 I toasted the baguette in the toaster oven; and (2 I only used shredded Gruyere cheese. I will be making this recipe again and again. Thanks Bobby!
