Caramelize the onions
- Heat stockpot over medium heat, add butter and melt.
- Add sliced onions, black pepper, and garlic powder and sauté 10-15 minutes until onions are caramelized.
- When onions are caramelized, add sherry to pot. Cook with onions until sherry is absorbed.
Simmer the soup
- Add beef broth, bay leaves, thyme springs, Worcestershire, and salt to taste. Continue to cook until the soup reaches a simmer. Then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes. Discard the bay leaf and thyme springs. Taste the soup and season with salt and pepper as needed.
Toast the bread
- Preheat oven to broiler. While the soup is simmering, slice the baguette into 1-inch thick pieces and arrange them in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 2-3 minutes, until the bread is toasted and golden around the edges. Keep a close eye on them so that they do not burn. Remove and set aside.
Broil the topping
- Keep oven on the broiler. Once the soup is ready to serve, place the oven-safe bowls on a thick baking sheet. Ladle the soup into each bowl, then top with a baguette slice and a slice of the cheese.
- Place on an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat and broil for 2-4 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Keep a close eye on them so that they do not burn.
- Remove from the oven and serve immediately while the soup is hot and bubbly.
