Directions:
Slowly cook onions in oil and butter, allowing onions to soften and begin to caramelize (this takes about 25-30 minutes). Add water and boullion, salt, pepper and red pepper. Cover pot and simmer slowly another 20-25 minutes. Pour into oven-proof bowls. Place 1/8th of the croutons over the soup and cover with the cheese slice. Place in oven under the broiler until cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown.

Some people place the cheese over the soup and then top with the croutons. Either way is good.
