Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Step 1
Melt butter with olive oil in an 8-quart stock pot over medium heat. Add onions and continually stir until tender and translucent. Do not brown the onions.

Step 2
Add beef broth, sherry, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Let simmer for 30 minutes.

Step 3
Meanwhile, preheat the oven's broiler.

Step 4
Ladle soup into oven-safe serving bowls and place one slice of bread on top of each (bread may be broken into pieces if you prefer). Layer each slice of bread with a slice of provolone, 1/2 slice diced Swiss and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese.

Step 5
Place bowls on a cookie sheet and broil in the preheated oven until cheese bubbles and browns slightly, 2 to 3 minutes.
