Got this one from a Betty Crocker cookbook. Changed it up just slightly for my family's taste. Very hearty and good when it is bitter cold outside.

Thanks to French Food and Photo Fun I came across this recipe to try for this challenge. Me being me I had to throw this all together just after I got home for dinner. I brought all of this to a boil, covered then put on simmer for several hours. Out come - Fantastic! A great new version on onion soup. Highly recommend trying this recipe. 10 stars!
