  • Throw the onions, butter, oil, Thyme and sugar into a large, heavy-based saucepan. Cook over a low to medium-heat for 30-40 minutes until the onions have become nutty brown in colour.

  • Stir in the flour and the 2 packets of Gravy Mix. Gradually pour in the water and wine, stir well and leave to simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes. Season with Black Pepper.

  • Meanwhile, pre-heat the oven to 190°C, 375°F, Gas Mark 5. Sprinkle a little of the grated cheese into the base of 4-6 ovenproof soup dishes. Ladle the soup into the dishes and top each with 2 toasted French bread slices. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over and bake for 20 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and serve. Be careful, the soup will be piping hot.
