  • 1 1/2 lb. onions
  • 1 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp butter, unsalted
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup white wine

  • 3 .When onions are a nice golden brown, add wine to deglaze the pan.
  • 4. Add stock, bring to boil and then reduce to simmer. Allow to cook for approximately 30 minutes.
  • 5. Ladle into heat proof bowls and place Croutons on top.
  • 6. Sprinkle with Gruyère or Swiss Cheese
  • 7. Place under broiler just long enough to melt the cheese.
