PS: Don't bother with the jar type of grated parmesan because it tastes yucky in the broth ;-)
Place ingredients in a two cup coffee mug, heat in microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds, stir, top with fresh parmesan if desired and serve.

Separate onion rings. Place in crock pot. Add bouillon cubes and water. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or until onions are tender. May simmer on low all day.
Many variations of onion soup are served, but the best, I believe, are true to the traditions of the bistros in Paris neighborhoods. Certainly, each kitchen has its own preferences (and we will offer options as well), but each preparation requires following a few essential steps - slow and thorough browning of the onions, simmering the broth and onions sufficiently to allow full flavor to develop and, finally, time in the oven to intensify these flavors.
