      1/4   c            Dry vermouth
    1       tb           Butter
                         Salt and Pepper to taste
    1       tb           Oil
    2       ts           Oil
      1/4   ts           Sugar
    1                    Garlic clove
    2       tb           Flour
    2       tb           Cognac
    6       c            Beef broth
    1       c            Grated swiss cheese
    4       sl           French bread cut 1/2 thick
 
   In a covered 4-quart saucepan, cook the thinly sliced
   onions slowly with the butter and 1 Tbs oil for about
   15 minutes. Keep covered, stir occasionally.  Uncover
   and increase heat to moderate. Add sugar and saute
   onions until golden brown, about 30 minutes.  Sprinkle
   onions with flour and stir over heat for 2 or 3
   minutes. Blend in hot broth and vermouth, season to
   taste. Simmer partly covered for 1 hour.
   
   Place bread slices in a 350 oven for 15 minutes.
   Remove and baste each slice with 1/2 tsp oil and rub
   with cut garlic clove. Return to oven for about 15
   minutes.
   
   Before serving, add cognac to soup and divide into 4
   ovenproof bowls. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese in soup.
   Float slices of bread on top of soup and sprinkle with
   the remaining cheese. Bake in 325 oven 15 to 20
   minutes until hot.  Set under broiler for 2 or so
   minutes until golden brown.
