    Peel and slice the onions into rounds. Heat the butter (or oil) and saute

    the garlic and onions until they are shiny and golden brown, about 10

    and pepper to taste and then simmer for 45 minutes. Add the sherry and

    simmer 5 minutes more.

    Grill the bread until golden. Meanwhile, mix the two cheeses and parsley in

    a bowl. Place a large tablespoon of cheese mixture on each round of grilled

    bread and grill until cheese is hot and bubbling.

    Place one round of bread in each soup bowl and then ladle boiling soup

    over. The crouton will rise to the top of the bowl, serve immediately.

    5 sweet onions (like Vidalias) or a combination of sweet and red onions (about 4 pounds)

    3 tablespoons butter

    1 teaspoon salt

    2 cups white wine

    10 ounces canned beef consume

    10 ounces chicken broth

    10 ounces apple cider (unfiltered is best)

    Bouquet garni; thyme sprigs, bay leaf and parsley tied together with kitchen string

    1 loaf country style bread

    Kosher salt

    Ground black pepper

    Splash of Cognac (optional)

    1 cup Fontina or Gruyere cheese, grated

    Trim the ends off each onion then halve lengthwise. Remove peel and finely slice into half moon shapes. Set electric skillet to 300 degrees and add butter. Once butter has melted add a layer of onions and sprinkle with a little salt. Repeat layering onions and salt until all onions are in the skillet. Do not try stirring until onions have sweated down for 15 to 20 minutes. After that, stir occasionally until onions are dark mahogany and reduced to approximately 2 cups. This should take 45 minutes to 1 hour. Do not worry about burning. Add enough wine to cover the onions and turn heat to high, reducing the wine to a syrup consistency. Add consume, chicken broth, apple cider and bouquet garni. Reduce heat and simmer 15 to 20 minutes. Place oven rack in top 1/3 of oven and heat broiler. Cut country bread in rounds large enough to fit mouth of oven safe soup crocks. Place the slices on a baking sheet and place under broiler for 1 minute. Season soup mixture with salt, pepper and cognac. Remove bouquet garni and ladle soup into crocks leaving one inch to the lip. Place bread round, toasted side down, on top of soup and top with grated cheese. Broil until cheese is bubbly and golden, 1 to 2 minutes.
