Foodie Byte: Upscale Version: Use a variety of onions such as red onions, shallots, leeks, or scallions. You can also substitute a sliced Gruyere cheese for the Provolone.


  1. Heat olive oil in large pot; add onions. Cook over medium-low heat for 20 to 30 minutes, or until onions are well caramelized. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add chicken broth, beef broth, and thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Ladle soup into four oven-proof bowls; top each with 1 slice toast, 1 slice cheese, and 1 teaspoon Parmesan cheese. Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve garnished with chives.
