1 stick unsalted butter
3 onions, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
3 fresh thyme sprigs
1 c. red wine
3 T. flour
2 quarts beef broth (can use low sodium)
1 baguette, sliced
1/2 lb. Gruyere cheese, grated
salt & pepper

Melt butter in large soup pot. Add onions, garlic, bay leaf, thyme and salt & pepper. Cook until onions are very soft and caramelized, about 45 minutes or more. Add wine; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until wine has mostly evaporated. Discard bay leaf and thyme sprigs. Dust onions with flour and stir about 1 minute. Turn down heat so flour doesn't burn. Add beef broth and bring soup back up to a simmer.
Preheat broiler. Arrange baguette slices on baking sheet and brush with butter. Sprinkle with cheese and broil until bubbly and golden.
Ladle soup into bowls and float the cheese bread on top.
