Directions:
Slice yellow onions and saute in large soup container with 1/2 c. margarine. Cook slowly, about 1 hour. Add more margarine if needed. Add three cans beef broth, and three cans water. If too thick add more beef broth. Cook for 15 minutes. Add a little flour to thicken, about 1/4 c. sugar and burgundy wine to color and flavor - usually 2 soup cans, depending on choice. Simmer slowly. Meanwhile, slice French bread - butter and toast both sides of slices. Do this in a broiler oven. You may put Parmesan cheese on toast on both sides. When toast is finished put soup in soup bowls (oven proof). Put in one or two slices of toast, put Swiss cheese on top and Parmesan cheese. Broil soup for a few minutes until brown and melted. Serve with extra bread, glass of burgundy and tossed salad.
