Step 1

In a 3 quart microwave-safe dish, add everything but the croutons and cheese. Cover and microwave at 50% power for 20-30 minutes or until onions are tender. Ladle soup into microwave-safe soup bowl. Top with croutons and cheese. Cover with wax paper; microwave on 100% power for 1 minute or until cheese is melted. If you have soup bowls that can be used in the broiler; then ladle soup, add croutons and cheese and broil for 1 minute or until cheese is melted. This is the standard for melting the cheese and makes is nice and brown on top. It's safer and easier to use a cookie sheet with soup bowls on it for broiling.
