I love to make soup! I have been searching for the greatest onion soup ever recipe. This was a very nice onion soup, just not the one I am searching for. It could be a bit stronger in the beef broth, perhaps. I served the bread cheese portion to the family, that went over perfectly, will use that part again. For me, needing gluten-free, no bread. I just laid the cheese atop the very hot soup in my bowl and it melted nicely. I think originally the reason the bread was under the cheese was to give it a raft!
