  • 3 T. butter
  • 1 c. Guinness beer
  • 4 c. beef broth
  • 1 t. Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 slices of frozen Texas Toast Garlic Bread
  • 1 c. shredded Irish cheddar cheese


  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add onions to the saucepan and cover. Cook for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Set heat on medium-high. Add beer and cook, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes, or until beer is reduced by about half.
