French Onion Soup with Finlandia Swiss Cheese
¼ c butter
3 onions, thinly sliced
1 t white sugar
1 T all purpose flour
2 ½ c water
½ red wine
2 (10.5 oz) cans condensed beef broth
1 French baguette, sliced thick
8 oz sliced Finlandia Swiss Cheese
Melt butter or margarine in a 4 quart saucepan. Stir in sugar. Cook onions over medium heat for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Stir in flour until well blended with the onions and pan juices and cook about 5 minutes. Add water, wine, and beef broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
Cut four thick slices of bread from the loaf. Toast the bread slices until browned and crusty. Reserve the remaining bread to serve with the soup. Ladle soup into four oven safe bowls. Place one slice of toasted bread on top of the soup in each bowl. Cover top of bowl with Finlandia Cheese slice until it just falls over the edge. Place soup bowls on a cookie sheet to avoid spills in the oven. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes or just until cheese is melted and golden brown.
