6 portions
  • 1/4 cups butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 kilos onion, sliced ​​slices
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • 6 1/4 cups chicken broth, or beef broth
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 2/3 cups dry white wine
  • 3 tablespoons brandy
  • pepper
  • 6 slices baguette bread, from the previous day sliced ​​thick
  • 1 clove garlic, Cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup gruyere cheese, Coarse grated


Melt the butter with the oil in a large saucepan.
Add the onions and stir them well covered.
Cook over low heat for 5 = 8 minutes, stirring occasionally until they begin to soften.
Add the thyme.
Reduce the heat to very mild, cover the pan and cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring frequently until the onions are very soft and golden yellow.
Uncover the saucepan, add the heat, add the sugar and cook for 5-10 minutes until the onions begin to brown.
Add the sherry vinegar and raise the heat again.
Continue cooking until the onions darken a little. (This can take up to 20 minutes.)
Meanwhile, boil the chicken broth (or beef).
Add the flour to the onions and stir constantly for 2 minutes.
Add the broth little by little and then the wine and brandy.
Season with salt and pepper.
Boil for 15-20 minutes.
For breads, preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Place sliced ​​bread on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
Spread with half the garlic, varnish with the mustard and sprinkle the bread slices with the gruyere cheese.
Put the soup in oven-proof deep bowls and place the loaves on top. Put in the oven with the "broil" very strong until the cheese melts and begins to bubble.
Serve immediately.
