French Onion Soup

Submitted by Danica Nelson

4 medium yellow onions
3 Tbsp. margarine
2 cans Campbell's Beef Consomme
2 cans water
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 Tbsp. parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp. flour (dissolved in a little water)
Salt and pepper to taste
Toasted French or Sourdough bread slices with shredded swiss cheese

Cut onions in half, then slice crosswise.  Saute onions in margarine until golden.  Add consomme and water and bring to a boil.  Reduce to simmer and add garlic powder and parmesan cheese.  Stir in flour and water mixture.  Simmer not less than 30 minutes.  Adjust salt and pepper.  Serve in ovenproof bowls with toast and cheese on top.  Broil a couple minutes until cheese has melted.  (I dried out the bread before I added cheese and broiled so that it would take longer to get soggy - heat oven to 350 and bake for about 5 minutes on each side, or until hard/crispy.)
