January 2, 2011 11:15:50 AM PST
French Onion soup is very popular and few would argue that the bread and cheese make the dish. With that in mind, Mr. Food creates something new.

Makes 4 Servings


1 loaf French bread, cut into 1/2-inch slices
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
1 envelope (from a 2.75-ounce box) onion soup mix, prepared according to package directions


1.Preheat oven to 425°F. Arrange bread slices on baking sheets and bake 5 minutes per side, until dry and golden.

2.Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Coat a 9" x 13" baking dish with cooking spray.

3.Arrange half the bread slices in a single layer over bottom of baking dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheese and top with remaining bread slices. Pour prepared onion soup over bread and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese.

4.Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until bread has absorbed most of the soup and cheese is golden.
