1-1/2poundsonions3 to 4, peeled and cut into thin half moons
1quartbeef broth4 cups
1can10.75 ounces beef consomme
Salt and freshly ground black pepperto taste
1/2cupgrated low fat swiss cheeseParmesan or a combination
Put butter in a large pot set over medium-low heat (I used my Ninja). Add the onions and sprinkle them with the sugar. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are well browned, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Add the flour and brandy and stir until they are well mixed with the onions, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the beef consomme, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper. Scrape up any browned bits from the pan. Lower the heat and simmer, covered 30 minutes. (Or in the Ninja set the slow cooker to low and cook 1 to 2 hours.)
Divide the shredded cheese evenly among the 6 slices of toasted french bread and broil until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.
Ladle soup evenly into the bowls and float a slice of cheese toast in each bowl.
