  • Heat dressing in large saucepan on medium heat. Add onions; cook 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring frequently.
  • Stir in broth, water and thyme. Bring to boil; simmer on medium-low heat 5 min.
  • Heat broiler. Ladle soup into 8 ovenproof bowls; top with croutons and cheese. Broil, 3 to 4 inches from heat, 2 to 3 min. or until cheese is melted.

How to Shed No Tears

To avoid crying while peeling or slicing onions, just chill them in the freezer for 10 to 15 min. before slicing. Or, peel the onions under cold running water.

Creative Leftovers

Using seasoned croutons takes the fuss out of toasting bread slices.

Special Extra

When entertaining, add 1/4 cup Port or brandy to the soup with the broth.
