2 tsp sherry wine vinegar

Olive oil for brushing

Method:

STEP 1:   In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the oil and butter until butter sizzles. Add onions, garlic and sugar and cook, for 25 minutes stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and transparent. Uncover and cook, over medium heat for 30 minutes stirring often or until onions are deep golden and caramelised.

STEP 2:   Stir in stock and bay leaves. Cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste and stir in vinegar.  

STEP 3:   Just before serving, to make cheese bread, preheat a grill on high and line a grill tray with foil. Brush bread on both sides with oil and rub with the cut-side of the garlic. Grill bread on one side until golden. Turn slices over and top with cheese. Grill until cheese bubbles. 

STEP 4:   Ladle soup into serving bowls and place toasted cheese bread on top of the soup just before serving.

Bon Appetite...Enjoy :)
