Ingredients
  • 6 T. butter
  • 12 sweet or Vidalia onions, sliced
  • 2 t. sugar
  • 3 T. flour
  • 10 c. beef stock
  • ½ c. dry white wine
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 8 (1/2”) slices of French bread
  • 8 slices of good quality Swiss cheese or gruyere
  • 2 c. grated Swiss or gruyere cheese
  • ½ c. grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 T. butter, melted

Instructions
  1. Melt 6 T. butter in large pot.
  2. Add onions and sugar. Saute over low heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring often to prevent scorching. Onions will become golden brown.
  3. Sprinkle flour over onions and cook 2 minute, stirring constantly.
  4. Add stock, stirring well to absorb the flour, wine, salt and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes. Recheck seasoning. *****Soup can be made to this point 2 days in advance and left in refrigerator.
  5. Broil bread slices on both sides until lightly browned.
  6. Spoon hot soup into individual oven-bowls. Place a slice of Swiss or gruyere cheese in each bowl.
  7. Top with bread.
  8. Mix Parmesan cheese and the grated cheese. Sprinkle a thick layer of this cheese over each serving.
  9. Drizzle the melted butter over top of each bowl.
  10. Broil until cheese melts and starts to brown. Serve very hot.

Notes
*****Serves 8.
