Cook onions till soft. Add 1clove garlic mashed, 2 tablespoon flour, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/3 teaspoon pepper. Cook till golden brown but not burned. Add 1/3 cup of finely chopped parsley, pinch of thyme, 2 cans chicken broth and 2 cans beef broth, and 1 cup white wine. Simmer for 45 minutes to one hour. Pour a serving of the soup into a bowl, cover with croutons or slice of French bread (these are optional), and cover with sliced jarlsberg cheese. Broil till cheese melted and just turning brown in spots.
