Slice onions 1/8 inch thick.
In a large stockpot, melt butter over low heat. Place onions in it and cook slowly for 1 1/2 hours. Add stock and bay leaves and simmer for 1 hour. Salt to taste.
Slice baguette bread in 1/2" slices. Put in toaster, to a medium brown.
Turn on broiler. Remove bay leaves. Spoon soup into oven-safe serving dish, top with toast and equal mixture of the grated Emmenthaler and Gruyere. Place under broiler, broil 3-6" away from heat for approximately 3-5 minutes. (Watch it carefully -- you want a nice browning but not burning.)

mmaruhnichSuper delicious. Super filling. Simple to make. I made it for my friends and they loved it. Served it with pears on the side and the rest of the baguette. Recommended! *(I also used vegetable broth, a dash of rosemary and thyme, I used gruyere cheese, I used more than two cups, also used more bay leaves)5d 8h ago
Carol3VTip for shorten prep time: I fry the onion rings in olive oil and when it's getting transparent, I add a spoon of suggar to help caramelization. Let it reduce for about 15 min. Im not sure if it taste the same because I've never had the patince to wait. Love love love it!2y ago
