Easy French Onion Soup

This quick and will not disappoint.

2 cups thinly sliced yellow onion (2 large)
2 T. butter
4 C. beef broth
2 T. dry sherry or dry white wine (optional)
(I added a bit of apple cider vinegar instead)
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Dash black pepper
6 slices French Bread, toasted
1 cut shredded Swiss, Gruyere, or Jarlsberg cheese (4 oz).
(I prefer sliced, not grated)

In a large saucepan cook onion, covered, in hot butter over medium-low heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender and golden, stirring occasionally. Stir in broth, dry sherry (if desired), Worcestershire sauce, and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, arrange toasted bread slices on a baking sheet. Evenly divide cheese among slices. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is light brown and bubbly. Top each serving with a bread slice.

tips for this recipe: close doors to all bedrooms and other rooms and open windows if possible while onions are cooking to avoid lingering onion smell.
