    2 leeks, cleaned and thinly sliced (white and tender green parts)
    2 Red Onion thinly sliced
    2 tbls Olive Oil
    2 cloves of garlic
    4 cups Beef Broth (can substitute chicken or vegi broth)
    1/2 tsp sugar
    1/2 cup white wine
    1 bay leaf
    dried tyme (1 tsp)
    Gruyere cheese (not included in recipe count)
    1 oz Crusty Bread (not included in recipe count - please enter the type of bread you choose)


In large pan heat olive oil on medium - low heat and add thinly sliced onions and cook until translucent. Add leeks and cook until soft then add sugar (if desired) to help the carmalizing process - this takes approx 30 - 45 min. but be patient it's worth the wait!

Once the onions and leek mixture is carmalized add the garlic, wine, bay leaf, tyme and broth and simmer for approx 20 - 30 min to let flavors come together. Remove bay leaf and ladle in to 4 oven proof bowls and top with 1 oz slice of bread and cheese. Place under broiler in oven until cheese is melted and bubbling - try not to brown too much. 3 servings
