I've had this recipe for a few years and I love it. It is a great compliment to any roast meal and especially nice for the holidays. If you aren't into butter, sautee the onions in olive oil and omit buttering the bread. It still comes out great. Evaperated milk (low fat or regular) compliments the sweetness of the onions. I have also used different creamed soups...cream of onion is really nice...and substituted worchestershire for the soy sauce. Sprinkle a little more swiss cheese for the last few minutes of baking.


Wow. Good flavor. I used a mix of cheeses since I didn't have all the Swiss called for, and I didn't bother to butter the bread slices (which I cut up into 'fingers' for easier serving). Also, instead of canned cream soup I used the Cream Soup Base from this site. Very very tasty.


This was a great side dish. It does taste like french onion soup. Next time I will cut the recipe in half or try freezing half of it. It makes a ton. I used fat free cream of mushroom soup, low sodium soy sauce and skim milk.
