Instructions

  1. In a large pot, melt the butter with the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the onion slices and garlic to the pot; season with a pinch of salt and black pepper.

  2. Cook the onions in the oil mixture for about about 1 hour until caramelized, stirring every 10 minutes to keep from browning too quickly.

  3. Stir the brown sugar and thyme into the caramelized onions; allow the sugar to melt into the onion mixture for about 2 minutes.

  4. Pour the wine over the onions and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Continue simmering for 5 minutes.

  5. Add the beef stock and cook together for about 10 minutes. Season to taste with more salt and pepper, if desired.

  6. Preheat the oven’s broiler.

  7. Ladle the soup into 5 oven-safe crocks arranged onto a baking sheet. Top the soup with a slice of French bread; cover with a slice of Swiss cheese, and sprinkle with some of the Parmagiano-Reggiano cheese.

  8. Melt the cheese under the broiler for about 2 to 3 minutes.
