    Creamy Swiss Onion Soup

    7 tablespoons butter or margarine
    1 1/2 cups day-old bread cubes
    3 large onions, quartered & thinly sliced
    1 1/2 cups water

    1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese

    Melt 3 tablespoons butter; toss with bread cubes. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 350F degrees for 7 minutes; turn and bake 7 minutes longer or until toasted.

    Meanwhile - in a large saucepan, saute the onions in remaining butter until lightly browned, about 12 minutes.
