Servings: 6 Servings
- 2 Large White Onions Smoked
- 2 Medium Red Onions Smoked
- 6 Slices Swiss Cheese Smoked
- 3 Everything Bagels Halved
- 8 Cups Beef Broth
- Salt & Pepper To Taste
- 2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Chop and saute the onions until tender using the olive oil. Cook them in a large sauce pan so you can make the soup in one pot! If you have time you can fully caramelize the onions but if you are in a hurry they just need to be tender.
After the onions are finished cooking you can add the beef broth. Allow the onions and beef broth to simmer for at least 1 hour, longer if you have time. We usually do about 2 hours of simmer time to allow everything to really come together and become perfectly tender.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and toast the bagel halves.
Transfer the soup into oven safe dishes. Leave enough room for the bagel and cheese on top!
Place the toasted bagels on top of the soup and then add the slices of smoked swiss. We used about three pieces of smoked swiss from a regular sized block. If you have larger sized blocks of smoked swiss you can use just one slice.
Place the oven safe bowls into the oven and bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and slightly brown on top.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool...they will be HOT HOT HOT.
Serve with a sprinkle of herbs de provence if you are so inclined and enjoy.
