1 tablespoon butter

1 medium onion, yellow skinned, chopped

3 cloves garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground thyme, poultry seasoning may be substituted

A few grinds black pepper

1 (12-inch) loaf crusty bread, split lengthwise

2 handfuls grated Parmigiano


  1. Melt butter in a small pan over moderate heat. Add onions and garlic and season with sugar, thyme and pepper. Cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden in color and translucent.
  2. Place the split bread on a baking sheet and broil until golden. Spread half the onions and garlic on each half of bread in a thin layer. Sprinkle each side of loaf with a handful of cheese and return to broiler for 30 seconds to bubble cheese. Serve with a hearty, soup-er supper
