      Sorry, this just had a funny taste...I can't place it but it just didn't turn out. I cut the onions back to 3 like Sue L took a little longer than 20 minutes to cook them. This just wasn't the soup for us.

      I prepared this recipe taking appleydappley's review into consideration. I used only three onions and a can of broth in place of the water which made this serve only four people. I also seasoned the onions with salt and pepper, and added a little more garlic and worcestershire sauce. The onions I cooked until soft but not browned, which at low heat took more than 20 minutes. We all thought the soup this way was very good and we are glad you shared! ~Sue

      This was not really to our taste. There were too many onions for the amount of broth. It might have been because they didn't seem to cook down very much - I sauteed them as directed, but perhaps it should be for longer since they were still crunchy when we ate the soup. I would have added more broth at the end to make it soupier, but I didn't have any more on hand. I did add 1/4 cup of cooking sherry at the end which brightened up the flavor that was otherwise somewhat bland. So I also think instead of adding 1 cup of water, that adding another can of broth would have improved he flavor.
