French Onion Soup Casserole

If you are like me and Love French Onion soup, but find it difficult to make individually,,,,then this recipe is for you!,,,I have made 2 of these before for my Christmas dinner of 20! Here is what I do

3 T Butter
3 large sweet yellow onions (halved, then sliced)
In a dutch oven or lg pot start by sauteing onions in butter
until translucent and soft about 20-25 minutes
next add
1 32 oz box beef broth
1 T worcestshire sauce
1 bay leaf
1/2 t dry thyme
1 can condensed onion soup (undiluted)
salt and pepper
whisk this into onion mixture and bring to boil then simmer for 25 minutes until thickened
12 slices  French baguette bread
1/2 C shredded mozzarella
1/2 C shredded swiss. (mix 2 cheeses together)
meanwhile broil bread slices on a cookie sheet until lightly toasted (set aside}
Once soup is ready,,be sure to remove bay leaf ...pour into a large casserole dish ,,,place toasted bread slices on top
top with cheese mixture and bake at 350 until cheese is melted
When finished ladle into bowls with a piece of the bread and enjoy! 
If you are using a dutch oven,,,you could keep it in there to bake!
