Southern Living


2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans Italian-style stewed tomatoes, undrained
1/4 cup butter
4 large white onions, chopped (about 2 1/2 pounds)
4 (10 1/2-ounce) cans beef consommé, undiluted
1/2 cup dry sherry
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
8 (3/4-inch-thick) French or sourdough bread slices
3 cups (12 ounces) shredded Italian three-cheese blend
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan-Romano cheese


Process tomatoes in a blender or food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides.

Melt 1/4 cup butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat; add onions, and cook, stirring often, 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Stir in pureed tomatoes, beef consommé, and next 3 ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes.

Ladle soup into 8 ovenproof bowls; top with bread slices, and sprinkle evenly with cheeses.

Broil, 5 1/2 inches from heat, 3 minutes or until cheese is browned and bubbly.
