Preheat oven to 425° F. In a large skillet, heat olive oil. Add roasted garlic and onion and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until onion softens (about 15 min). Stir in sugar and salt, then balsamic vinegar. Add beef broth and simmer until liquid evaporates (5-10 min). Stir in thyme leaves, remove from the heat

Bake in the oven until cheese is bubbling and golden (10 min)
