  • 3. Leave to cool in the pan and then stir in flour, stock, meat glaze and wine. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 4. Put the pan back on the heat and bring to a boil.
  • 5. In a bowl, cream the rest of the butter with the mustard and brandy. Stir into the soup bit by bit.
  • 6. Toast 6 baguette slices and put under the grill with some Parmesan cheese to melt.
  • 8. To serve, put a slice of the French bread in the bottom on each individual soup bowl and spoon the onion soup over it. Sprinkle with more grated Parmesan cheese and a little melted butter, and brown under a hot broiler. Serve with the thin slices of toasted cheesy French bread and more grated cheese.
