    Lainey6605's Note:

    There are several onion soup recipes on zaar, but this one is a little different and one that I've been making for years. I can't remember where I got it from, though. It doesn't take long to prepare.

      my hubby enjoyed this as I am not really an onion soup person. I found this to be an ok recipe. I cubed bread for easability in eating and made it in small soup crocks and served it with crusty bread/butter. easy to make.

      I'm sorry to say, but this didn't sit well with us. We found it much too sweet for our tastes. I usually use Vidalias, which are sweet enough on their own, so for us the additional sugar isn't necessary. I certainly don't regret making it though. It's always good to try something new. Thanks Lainey.
