Once the onions are done, turn the grill to a high heat and pop in the toasts.

When golden brown and bubbling, set aside.

Tip the onions into a large pot, add 150ml white wine, bring to the boil and cook until the wine has evaporated.

Add 1 tbsp butter.

When it has melted, add 1 tbsp flour.

Cook,stirring for 2 minutes. Gradually add 1,5 litres hot home-made beef stock.
