When You Go to the Store, Get Onions

Make this. 
I am not kidding you, it's divine!  I love, love, LOVE French Onion Soup.  The other day I found a recipe for French Onion Soup Casserole.  I decided to bite the bullet and cut the darn onions.  I hate that job.  Truth be told, however, it wasn't that bad.  And the results were SO worth it.
French Onion Soup Casserole
2-3 Tbs butter or margarine
3 large sweet onions or 4 medium white or yellow onions (I used a couple extra)
2 c. shredded Swiss cheese (8 oz.)
1 can cream of chicken soup
2/3 c. milk
1 tsp. soy sauce
8 or so slices of French bread (any bread will do)
Slice onions. Melt butter in a saute pan over medium heat, and add onions. Saute onions until clear, a little brown is ok. In a shallow 2 qt. casserole pan, layer onions, 2/3 of cheese and pepper to taste.

In a sauce pan, heat soup, milk, and soy sauce, stirring to blend. Pour soup mixture in a casserole and stir gently to mix. Top with bread slices. Bake at 350 uncovered for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, top of bread should be nice and toasted.

Push bread slices under the sauce and top with the remaining cheese.

Place casserole back in oven and finish baking for 15 more minutes.
