    CountryLady's Note:

    Mother Martin's restaurant in Montreal, Canada makes the best onion soup ever - more savoury than sweet! This recipe is the closest to it that I've ever tasted & came from a French Canadian friend who lived in Quebec City. The number of servings will depend on the size of your bowls & the thickness of the French bread. Use Swiss or Gruyere if you prefer -its your choice ..... Bon Appetit!!!

      This was my first time straying away from my original recipe. I am glad I did! I served it to my wife for a special meal it was a hit. Our hats go off to you for the great recipe.

      This was very good. It cooked away and thickened, so it gave us 2 generous serves in deep bowls. I love French onion Soup, but often Russell complains it's too sweet-no complaints today. Loved the thyme in it too.

      I thought this was delicious. With the herbs, the taste is slightly different from the usual versions I have tried, however this was very pleasant. Next time I might try using fresh herbs, but the dried were fine. It does seem to disappear as it simmers, even when placed over a rather low flame, but I was still able to get 4 ample servings.
