How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Bake bread pieces 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly golden and crisped. Set aside.
  • Sauté sliced onions in olive oil and butter over medium heat until onions become translucent but not brown. Add minced garlic cloves to onions during last few minutes, making sure garlic does not brown.
  • Stir in beef broth, wine and seasonings.
  • Bring to a boil; reduce, heat and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes. Adjust seasonings to taste adding salt and pepper as required. Remember that Parmesan cheese is salty, so don't overdo with the salt.
  • Ladle the soup into ovenproof serving bowls, one for each serving. Cover soup with a slice of bread. Top with Gruyère and sprinkle with Parmesan.
  • Place serving bowls under broiler set on high. Broil six to seven minutes or until cheese is bubbly and has some browning.
  • Serve with additional grated Parmesan cheese for sprinkling at table.

    1 tsp minced pumpkin puree
    1 oz brandy
    ½ oz Calvados
    2 oz apple juice
    ¼ oz grenadine
    splash soda
    garnish cinnamon stick

    Put all ingredients except grenadine and cinnamon stick into cocktail shaker, shake vigorously and pour into a tall martini glass. After pouring, drizzle grenadine on top so it falls to the bottom of the glass to create the effect of an "autumn sunset."

    If you wish to drink this beverage hot, omit the splash of soda. Pour ingredients into 8 oz glass coffee mug, add 6 oz hot water, stir vigorously to blend. Add grenadine as above. Garnish with cinnamon stick plus three whole cloves.
