French Onion Soup Cooking onions until they are golden brown and caramelized lend incredible flavor to this classic broth-based soup. It's quick and easy to prepare, and a necessary member of a cook's repertoire for fall and winter meal-making. This version has the added benefit of being lighter than its restaurant counterparts, which are typically overflowing with toasted cheese. Although there's French bread already in this soup, serve some extra alongside to get every last drop. nutrition facts Calories306 Total Fat (g)18 Saturated Fat (g)11, Cholesterol (mg)47, Sodium (mg)1023, Carbohydrate (g)24, Fiber (g)2, Protein (g)10, Calcium (DV%)18, Iron (DV%)6, Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet Ingredients 1/4 cup butter 2-1/2 cups thinly sliced onions (2 large) 2 14-oz. cans beef broth 1/4 cup dry sherry or dry white wine 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 4 1/2-inch slices French bread, toasted 2/3 cup shredded Swiss, Gruyere, or Jarlsberg cheese Directions In a 3-quart saucepan melt butter.
