1 cup 35% whipping cream

2 tablespoons (25 mL) all-purpose flour

½ cup (125 mL) Gruyère cheese, grated

½ teaspoon (2 mL) salt

1. In large non-stick frying pan, heat 1 tbsp (15 ml) of butter over medium-low heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 6 minutes or until softened.
