Cook Time70 minutes
onionspeeled and thinly sliced
garlicpeeled and crushed
salt and grouind black pepper
French breadabout 1 in thick
Heat the butter in a large heavy-based saucepan over a low heat until it melts and begins to foam. Add the onions and garlic, cover the pan, then cook, stirring often, for 30-35 minutes, until the onions are golden brown.
Add the flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 2-3 minutes. Pour in the stock little by little, stirring all the time, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
Preheat the broiler to high. Toast the French bread on one side under the broiler, top the uncooked side with the grated cheese. Broil until the cheese has melted and browned. Pour the soup into individual bowls and place a piece of the toasted bun on top of each serving.
NOTE: The secret with this soup is to cook the onions long enough to give them a brown color, without burning the butter. The browner the onions, the sweeter and richer the soup will be. Adding 2 teaspoons of sugar to the onions after 10 minutes makes them brown faster.
Pairs with red wines, Petite Sirah and Syrah.
