Ingredients

Parmesan Croutons

  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 3 slices bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Soup

  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 large onions, cut into fourths and sliced (1 1/2 lb)
  • 2 cans (10 1/2 oz each) condensed beef broth
  • 2 soup cans water

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. In 13x9-inch pan, melt 1/4 cup butter in oven. Toss bread cubes in butter until evenly coated. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake uncovered 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and crisp.
  • 2
    Reduce oven temperature to 325°F. In 4-quart ovenproof Dutch oven, melt 1/4 cup butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Toss onions in butter mixture.
  • 3
    Bake uncovered about 2 hours 30 minutes, stirring every hour, until onions are deep golden brown. Remove from oven; stir in broth and water. Heat to boiling on top of stove. Serve with croutons.

  • Go with 3 cups of purchased croutons, such as cracked pepper and Parmesan croutons, found near the salad dressings at your supermarket instead of making the Parmesan Croutons.
  • For Cheesy Golden Onion Soup, spoon soup into broiler-proof bowls, top with croutons and sprinkle each serving with 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese. Place bowls in shallow baking pan and broil with tops 4 to 5 inches from heat about 2 minutes or until cheese is melted and light brown.
