    In 12-inch cast-iron skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Add onions; cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions begin to brown. Reduce heat to medium; cook 10 to 12 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are browned. Increase heat to high. Add broth; cook and stir 5 to 7 minutes or until onions are dark brown and liquid has evaporated. Transfer onions to bowl.

    Wipe out skillet with paper towels. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons butter in skillet over medium heat. Add bread cubes; stir to coat. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until cubes are lightly browned. Reduce heat to low; pour egg mixture into skillet over bread cubes. Cook 5 to 8 minutes, without stirring, until eggs are set on bottom, but still jiggly on top. Arrange onions over top. Sprinkle with cheese.

    Broil with top of skillet 6 inches from heat 3 to 5 minutes or until set and cheese is melted.

Expert Tips

  • Cooking the caramelized onions with beef flavored broth infuses them with the flavor of French onion soup. Make sure to cook onions until broth is almost completely evaporated; otherwise, this dish may be mushy after it’s cooked.
  • Gruyère cheese can be substituted for the Swiss cheese in this recipe.
