Cook onions over medium heat for about 10 minutes.

Whisk flour and milk in a measuring cup. 
Stir milk mix into onion mixture.  Cook on medium heat until soup comes to a boil and thickens.
While cooking cut bread into the shape of the bowl and butter.  (Save crusts in freezer to use for bread crumbs when needed)
