This is very rich and creamy...yum!! I actually only made the soup and passed on the toast (not into Stilton cheese), but this is great soup with nothing added on top, I promise! Just make sure you like rich soup before deciding to make it. ;-)Was very easy to make, didn't take hardly any time, either. (I made half a recipe and halved the cooking times.) I would actually call it something like creamy onion soup...only because the "french onion soup" part to me makes me think more of a beef broth. Great recipe, thanks Nat!!
