{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} French Onion Soup with Provolone


French Onion Soup with Provolone

I ADAPTED a basic recipe to copy the onion soup served at my favorite restaurant. No matter what my entree, I always ordered the soup. Now I can make it at home. It's a meal in itself or an impressive beginning to a full-course meal. -Barbara Brunner, Steelton, Pennsylvania

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 55 minutes.

Bake: 10 minutes.

YIELD: 2 servings


·                                 2 medium onions, chopped

·                                 1 teaspoon sugar

·                                 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

·                                 1/8 teaspoon pepper

·                                 Dash ground nutmeg

·                                 2-1/2 cups beef or vegetable broth

·                                 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

·                                 2 slices French bread (1 inch thick)

·                                 4 slices provolone cheese
