Directions:
Melt the butter with the oil in a large, heavy pan over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, covered, for 10-12 min. until they soften, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat a little and continue cooking, uncovered for 30-35 min, or until the onions turn a deep, golden brown, stirring from time to time until they start to color, then stirring more frequently and scraping the bottom of the pan as they begin to stick.

Sprinkle over the flour and stir to blend. Stir in the white wine and simmer for 1 minute. Pour in the bouillon and bring to a boil, scraping the bottom of the pan and stirring to combine well.

Reduce the heat to low, add the Cognac or brandy, and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, for 45 minutes.

Toast the bread under a preheated hot broiler on one side. Turn over and top with cheese, dividing it evenly among the 6 slices. Broil until the cheese melts. Place a piece of cheese toast in each of the 6 warmed bowls, then ladle hot soup over. Serve at once.
