This is the most tasteless soup I have ever made/eaten. A total waste of ingredients and time

Delicious and TOO easy! I had large, softball sized onions, and a small 2 qt crock pot, so I cut the recipe in half, and just used 1 onion. It was superb and simple! Thanks, Mimi!

Although I'm sure it enhances the flavor of this soup, the French onion dip mix is probably the culprit contributing to the excessively high sodium content of this recipe.

Oh, this is awesome! I put some garlic, a diced jalapeno, and sliced portobello stems for extra flavour.

Wow! This was great. My very picky husband LOVES French onion soup and I've been meaning to try making it for him. I made it today and it was a HIT! Yay. I used 5 large white onions, 2 - 900ml boxes of fat free beef broth and 2 pkgs of onion soup mix. The flavour is great, but I think I would use only 4 large onions next time. I topped them with cheese and garlic croutons, a sprinkle of parmesean and a handful of mozzerella. I had mine without the onions as I don't care for them in large pieces, and it was great! This made more like 8 servings for me. I think I used more broth than was called for, but it was still very thick and rich.

So easy and so good! My first time maming onion soup from scratch and now I will be a fiend with it. I did make some changes as I was out of onion soup mix, subbed in dried onions, beef granules, garlic powder to compensate. I also added in some salt and pepper to taste and some worchestire sauce (1 tbsp) to kick it a bit. Thisis an excellent and so simple recipe to make. It will be on my holiday table for Christmas.

You could retitle this "french onion soup for the frantic and disorganized!" This soup was awesome and I did everything possible to mess it up. I had a crazy morning and didn't get a chance to start the soup until 11:20 when I had to leave again at 11:30. I only had concentrated beef broth and wasn't sure if onion dip mix was the same as onion soup mix, the latter being what I had on hand. And I only had enough ingredients for half a recipe. So I used the concentrated broth but added some extra water, and used the onion soup mix. I had Vidallia onions, and they were so big, I only needed two. I started the soup on low and cranked it to high for 1.5 hours in the middle, then back to low for a total of 5.5 hours. Definitely did step three with the bread and cheese. We all loved it! Thanks Mimi for a real winner!

Excellent tasting and so easy to make! I did add 1 T brown sugar and 2 packages of the dry French Onion dip. I did add step 3 using French bread and Swiss cheese. Delicious!
