  • Thinly slice all of the onions. Heat your soup pot on high on the stove. Once it is hot add the oil.
  • Once the oil starts to smoke add your onions.  Cook the onions until they are wilted down and caramelized, about 20 minutes. Do not stir the onions for the first 4 minutes.
  • Deglaze the pot with the white wine. (this means just pour your wine in, for those who are not always masterminds in the kitchen)
  • Next add the beef broth, bay leaf, italian seasoning, salt and pepper to the pot.
  • Cook the soup on medium heat for 30 minutes. 
  • Turn the oven on to broil. Slice your bread if it is not presliced. Butter one side of the bread slices and broil over low heat on a baking sheet, allowing bread to brown and become crispy. Once done remove the bread from the oven.
  • Ladle the soup into your bowl or ramekin.
  • Place crispy bread on top, and then sprinkle generously with grated cheese.
  • Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly.
