Soupe a L'oignon Gratinee (French Onion Soup)

Yield: 5-6 cups

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 large onions, peeled and sliced thinly

2 cups beef broth

2 cups chicken broth

6 slices French bread, toasted

4 ounces grated Parmesan cheese

2 ounces grated Gruyère cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

Melt the butter and oil in a heavy saucepan. Add the onions and sauté over low heat until onions are golden brown, about 40 minutes. Stir in the beef and chicken stock, bring to a boil, lower the heat to a simmer and cook the soup for 30 minutes. Season the soup with salt and pepper. Ladle the soup into oven-proof bowls and top each soup with a slice of French bread and the grated cheeses. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10 to 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden brown.
