Peel and finely slice the onions.  Peel and crush the garlic.

Heat the butter in a saucepan add the onions, garlic and the sugar.  Cook until well coloured.

Gradually add the stock and bring to the boil.  Skim and allow to simmer until the onion is soft.

Adjust the seasoning and pour into marmites.

Place croute de flutes on top of the soup and cover with the grated cheese.  Gratinate through the oven or under a grill.

 

Notes:

  1. A mixture of 75% cheddar and 25% parmesan cheese will give both a good flavour and gratinate well.
