“Soups are popular in Switzerland. And the secret to the balance of flavors of this traditional Swiss soup is gently toasting the flour first. I first found this recipe on the recipeland website, but I’ve also seen it on the Allrecipes site (submitted by Corwinn Darkholme), but I didn't check to see if it's an exact duplicate.”

Directions

  1. In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, heat the flour gently until it begins to turn pale golden brown, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
  2. In another pan, saute onion slices in butter. When transparent, blend them into the flour. Gradually add beef stock, wine, salt and pepper to taste. Cook gently, stirring frequently, for about 30 minutes.
  3. Put a slice of bread in each of four soup bowls, topping each bread slice with a generous amount of cheese. Using a ladle, pour soup into each bowl, and serve at once.
