Bermuda onions are very tasty and sweet. If you don't have them, don't worry. Any good onion will do.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a pot large enough to contain all the ingredients, saute the onions in the butter and oil until they are just golden.
  2. Sprinkle onions with flour and cook another 5 minutes or so, allowing the mixture to darken slightly.
  3. Stir in the hot broth, taking care to keep the soup free of lumps.
  4. Season with the white pepper, drop in the bouquet garni (remove before serving), the rum and simmer for 30 minutes.
  5. Add a few generous dashes of sherry peppers sauce just before serving.
  6. Top each bowl with a round of French bread sprinkled liberally with Gruyere cheese and melted under the broiler.
