Instructions:In a large pan cook onions in butter, covered, until they tenderize. Add broth, worchestershire sauce, salt, & pepper. Bring to a boil. Cook for 15-20 minutes.
For the bread there are several options.
1. Sprinkle your choice cheese on the bread, place under broiler until cheese melts and starts to brown slightly. Ladle soup into large bowls, and float bread on top.
2. In a broiler-proof soup bowl, you can float the bread on the soup add cheese and place the whole thing under the broiler until the cheese starts to melt and brown slightly.
