- 5 yellow onions, peeled and sliced

In a large saucepan, melt the butter and add the onions. Cook until golden and caramelized, about 40 minutes, stirring every few minutes.
Add the garlic, cook for 1 minute and stir in the flour and cook for another minute.
Stir in the wine to deglaze the pan and scrape the bottom of the pan.
Add broth, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaf and thyme. Cover partially, bring to a boil and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove the bay leaf and sprigs of thyme.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and place the sliced bread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes.
