French Onion Bake Recipe

This is a casserole version of my favorite winter soup, French onion. It always receives raves at potlucks and family gatherings.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 large white or yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, divided
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed beef consomme, undiluted
  • 1/4 cup cooking sherry, optional
  • 4 slices French bread (1 inch thick)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  • 1. In a large skillet, saute onions in 2 tablespoons butter until tender. Sprinkle with flour; stir in salt and pepper. Add the consomme and sherry if desired; cook and stir until thickened, about 3 minutes. Pour into a shallow 2-qt. baking dish or individual baking dishes. Spread remaining butter on both sides of bread; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Place bread on top of onion mixture; sprinkle with cheeses. Bake, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Yield: 4 servings.

"This is simple to make. It is very tasty. I omitted the optional Sherry. This and a salad could make a complete meal."
