French Onion Soup

My daughter wanted some onion soup, so she started digging for recipes. (Actually as soon as she mentioned it I realized how long it had been since I had any.) We came up with this recipe, which is a variation of one in a Better Homes and Gardens vegetable cookbook.

1 lb Onions,Sliced
2 T Unsalted Margarine
2 cn Low Sodium Beef Broth
1 t Worcestershire
4 sl Low Sodium French Bread
2 sl Swiss Cheese

in a heavy covered saucepan, cook onions in margarine at low temperature until soft, 15 to 20 minutes. Add broth and Worcestershire and bring to boiling. Lightly toast bread under broiler. Place 1/2 a slice of cheese on each piece of bread and broil until bubbly. FLoat a slice of bread on each bowl of soup.
