For soup, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and sugar; cook, stirring frequently, for 15 minutes, or until tender and golden. Stir in flour and 1/2 tsp salt. Gradually stir in broth. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to LOW; cover and simmer 10 minutes
