Recipe for Easy Onion Soup with Bacon, Swiss Cheese Crostini, Traditionally French Onion Soup is baked in individual serving bowls which are difficult to transport on a baking sheet to and from the oven. The extremely hot bowls also made it impossible to serve for family meals when my kids were very young. So I created this easy version that quickly became a family favorite. The crostini soak up the broth and are a virtual explosion of delightful flavors with every bite!
