Good recipe! Next time I may add another onion to the pot, and I increased the amount of pepper. I was surprised at how easy this was and that it came together so quickly.

This is an EXCELLENT soup! Made it just the way you have it here, then I used Swiss and Asiago cheeses at the end - wow! My husband liked it better than Panera's! This also froze well when I went on an extended trip to Japan and cooked ahead for my husband. He just defrosted it in the microwave, heated it for 2 minutes, added the bread, topped with cheeses and broiled for 2 minutes. This is definitely a keeper! Thank you!

First time ever making french onion soup. Thank you for such an easy and quick recipe. I used sweet Vidala Onions and did not add the sugar. This soup was a huge hit. My b/f who normally suffers after eating onions, had no problem, perhaps the Vidala Onions, not sure, but Thank You for a Easy and Tasty Recipe!!!
