Ingredients:  
6 large onions, sliced thinly
2 Tbsp flour
6 Tbsp butter
1 quarts beef broth (I use 2 3 cans beef broth and some water)
1 tsp salt
4 Tbsp dry sherry I add more
2 tsp sugar
Thick Italian bread
Gruyere cheese *Important to use Gruyere*

Directions:
Directions:
In a pot, melt the butter and stir in the onions. Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes until they are cooked but not browned. I add a little more butter. Add salt and sugar. Cook until the onions start to brown a little increasing the heat if needed. Stir in flour after browning starts to occur. Add the sherry, again this is a taste thing. I think more sherry tastes better. Simmer a little longer and then add the beef stock. The beef stock can be made richer with beef bullion or thinned with water.
