Melt the butter in a large, heavy-based saucepan over a moderate heat. Add the onions and saute for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft and starting to colour. Add the bacon at this point and stir well, continuing to cook for 2-3 minutes.

Add the stock and milk, bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook gently for 10 minutes until slightly thickened. Adjust the seasoning, then ladle into serving bowls.

Garnish with chunks of bread, a sprig of sage leaves and some more black pepper before serving.
