    Mary K. W.'s Note:

    This is a recipe that I've had for years and once again have no idea where it came from. My family likes it better than any we've ever had in a restaurant. This is also great the second (or third) day. The amount of onions you use will depend on how strong you want the onion taste to be. In my opinion, you can have too much onion, so I usually tend to stay closer to the 3 cups rather than 5.

      This is a great soup, although I felt it was missing something. I added some oregano and brown sugar and that helped it out (a bit unconservative, but I was feeling adventurous). It was very good, but I think I'll stick to my usual recipe.

      Wonderful soup. I used a scant 4 cups of onions and the white wine. It has a rich flavor without being over strong in anything. and the cheese looks wonderful with a nice touch of brown on it. It's company worthy and everyday easy to make and creates the most wonderful aroma. I had people following their noses into the kitchen wanting a sample. It's a keeper.
