  1. (15 grams of wheat flour = 2 tablespoons) Slice the onions, grate the swiss cheese, crush the garlic.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and garlic, reduce heat to low and cook until golden, or about 20 minutes.
  3. Add flour and cook until golden, about 1 minute.
  4. Remove from heat and gradually add stock, stirring constantly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
