This is an easy recipe for a tasty soup! I also add in a tablespoon fresh minced garlic with the onion :)

What's not to love about onions and cheese together? I used a nice big Vidalia onion, and colby-jack blend cheese. The soup is very cheesey and good; great texture. It's very easy to whip up, too. Thanx for another great soup; I'll make this often.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan saute onion and pinch cayenne pepper in butter until the onions are just lightly golden (about 12 minutes, can add in 1 teaspoon sugar to speed up the browning process).
  2. Stir in flour and salt until blended.
  3. Gradually add half and half cream until blended.
  4. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  5. Season with ground black pepper to taste.
  6. Stir in Colby or Monterey Jack cheese until melted.
  7. Ladle into bowls, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and croutons.
