I would make the soup in a large pot then pour it into the mugs. If you're going to top them with bread and cheese, you should make sure the mugs are OK to go under the broiler to melt and brown the cheese.

I would use Andy's suggestion. If the mugs are not broiler safe then maybe you could CAREFULLY use a blow torch to brown the cheese.

Yep! If that doesn't work... you could microwave the soup after adding
the bread and cheese to the mugs.
It won't be quite the same but... it'd work.

Trent, welcome to DC.

Not sure of why you want to make the soup in mugs. Can I talk you out of the mugs? I have a recipe for onion soup served in onions. Anyone interested, just wave.
