Made this today for lunch. Due to weather, we didn't go to work, but I did some work from home. My boss stopped over with another co workers so I made this. I just made some quick mashed spuds in the micro and presto, spuds! This was great. I got some wonderful onions from the market and plenty of herbs so this was great. I didn't have croissants but some not baguettes sliced which worked fine and I almost always have gruyere which is a fave of mine. What a nice creamy soup. No complaints on this end and will definitely make again, it was very very good. 1 change, I added a bit more thyme but I also used fresh, but a tablespoon, but I really enjoy thyme. Only change. Perfect as is. And it didn't take long. I had 2 lbs of shrimp to cook, so we had peel and eat warm garlic shrimp and soup. Nothing more needed. It was heavenly and on a very very cold day even better. Thx for the great recipe.

Amazing soup. Careful not to put too much hot in, otherwise you will probably want to stick to the recipe as outlined. Served this at a party and it was the only soup that disappeared. The great flavor keeps coming at you even to last spoonful. Thanks for posting this great soup recipe.

Made this for our dinner last night. DH and I really enjoyed it. It had a bit more spice than I like in this type of soup. I would try half the pepper the next time I make it. It also took longer than 15 minutes to carmelize the onion and it still didn't get particularly brown. I used french bread and gruyere for the topping. Thanks for posting.
