My husband and I love creating new recipes together based on our favorite foods. This is our very first creation as a married couple. The cheesy bread can also be use as an appetizer for a party. —Taryn Camp, Oviedo, Florida

  • 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large saucepan, saute onion in oil until tender, 8-10 minutes. Add the broth, 1 garlic clove and thyme; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 12-15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine butter and remaining garlic; stir until creamy. Spread over bread slices. Place on a greased cast-iron 15x10-in. baking pan or other ovenproof metal serving platter. Bake until lightly toasted, 5-8 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese; top with onion mixture and Gruyere cheese. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat until bubbly, 1-2 minutes.
