Tomato French Onion Soup
Want to try the best soup recipe ever? Grandmother's Tomato French Onion Soup is a great rendition of two favourite soup flavours rolled into one delicious recipe. Both French Onion soups and Tomato soups are so good on their own, and each have a distinct flavour, so people may not think of putting them together. But they really work well together. The tomato soup adds a great flavour to the french onion soup and makes it a little thicker than it usually would be. This is one of those easy homemade soups recipes that you can make for either lunch or dinner, either as a side or as a full meal since it's so satisfying. Make sure you have your bread ready to dip into it too. Try this yummy soup and other soup recipe ideas from Grandmother's own collection of original recipes.

2 cups water
1 can (10.5) ounce condensed beef consomme
1/4 cup dry sherry
8 thin slices French bread
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Add the onions and cook over medium low heat for 10 minutes.
Open the can of tomatoes and drain, reserving the liquid.
Chop the tomatoes into tiny pieces.
Add the tomatoes, reserved tomato juice, water, consomme and the sherry.
Bring the soup to a boil. Skim off any foam.
Turn the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Shut off.
Turn on the broiler.
Divide the soup into four broiler-proof bowls.
Top each bowl with two thin slices of French bread.
Divide the Swiss and Parmesan cheese between the bowls.
Situate the soup bowls onto a baking sheet place under the broiler. Keep an eye on the soup and broil until the cheese is melted and golden.
If you do not have broiler proof bowls, you can use ovenproof soup boils and bake for 10 minutes at 350F.
