  • Peel and thinly slice onions.
  • Melt butter in a medium size sauce pan over moderate heat. Add sliced onions and cook for 10 minutes in low flame or until golden but not brown, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in the flour and cook for one minute.

  • While the soup is simmering, top each slice of bread with a large enough piece of the cheese to completely cover it.
