    1 tsp. olive oil
    1 c. thinly vertically sliced sweet onion
    1 c. thinly vertically sliced red onion
    1/4 tsp. sugar
    1/4 tsp. pepper
    1/8 tsp. salt

    1/8 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
    4 (1 oz.) sliced French bread cut into 1-inch cubes

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions to pan; saute 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in sugar, pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon of salt. Reduce heat to medium; cook 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Increase heat to medium-high; saute 5 minutes or until onion is golden brown. Stir in wine; cook 1 minute. Add broth and chopped thyme; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 2 hours.

Preheat boiler. Place bread in a single layer on a baking sheet; broil 2 minutes or until toasted, turning after 1 minute.
