I first made this soup about 15 years ago, and was amazed at how simple and easy it was, as well as so full of flavor since it is made in the microwave. It really is good. Does not taste like it was made quick and easy at all.
Peel cut in half and slice onions and set aside. Place butter in 3 quart glass casserole measuring cup. Microwave at HIGH until melted, about 1 1/2 minutes. Add onion slices, tossing to coat. Cover and microwave on high 6-8 minutes or until onions are tender, stirring at least twice. Blend in broth, water, sugar, wine and pepper. Cover and microwave on HIGH until heated through about 8 minutes.
Brush one side of french bread with melted butter. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Place under broiler to toast.Ladle soup into six individual serving dishes. Top each bowl with toast and 1 ounce of swiss cheese.
Place bowls in microwave oven in circular pattern. Microwave at high 4 to 8 minutes or until cheese melts and soup is hot.
