Number of Servings: 7


    3 tablespoons of unsalted butter
    3lbs or 4.5 large onions thinly sliced
    1tsp of sugar
    2 Tbs of all purpose flour
    1 large box of reduced-sodium beef broth 32oz
    1/4 cup red wine
    6 slices french bread
    6 ounces of Gruyere cheese or Gouda


1) Melt butter in a very large, deep pot over medium heat. Add onions, and stir to coat. Cover: cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are very soft and begin to turn golden brown.
2) Uncover: increase heat to medium-high. Add sugar and cook, uncovered, 10 minutes, stirring often. Sprinkle with flour: cook 1 minute. Stir in broth, wine and 1 cup of water. Simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
3) heat broiler. Spread bread slices on a baking sheet: toast under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes per side: set aside. Place six oven proof bowls or crocks on a baking sheet. Divide soup evenly among bowls (about a cup in each).
4) Use a vegetable peeler or cheese plane to thinly slice pieces of cheese. Place slice of toast on each serving of soup, top with cheese ( divide evenly among the bowls). Heat under broiler for 3 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Carefully remove from oven and serve warm
