French Onion Soup

Fast. Easy. Fabulous. Low calorie. I don't think I need to say anything else!

French Onion Soup
2 T. butter
2 c. thinly sliced yellow onions
4 c. beef broth
2 T. sherry
1 t. Worcestershire
salt and pepper to taste
6 slices crusty bread
1 c. shredded Swiss, Gruyere or Jarlsberg cheese

Melt butter in large saucepan. Add onions. Cook, covered over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally for 8-10 minutes, or until golden. Stir in broth, sherry and Worcestershire. Bring to boiling. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Preheat broiler. If you have oven safe bowls, ladle 1 c. of soup into bowls top with bread and cheese and broil until bubbly. If you do not have oven safe bowl. Just broil the bread and cheese on a baking sheet and place in bowl of soup when ready.
