A quick and very good onion soup recipe. I made it as directed but needed to add salt and more pepper for our taste. If I did not already have a stellar French Onion Soup recipe I would likely have given this a 5 star rating but my 'standby' recipe has a much more complex taste. In fairness it also takes more than 3 times as long. DH really liked this and I would not hesitate to serve it to company. Thanks for sharing!

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!!!

Very good, but I should have cooked the onions longer (maybe as long as 45 minutes instead of 15) and let them get much more caramelized. Next time - I will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe!

Very good and easy, too. However it did need salt. Thanks for the recipe - it satisfied my craving for French Onion Soup!

Very easy and delicious. Richer taste than a non alcoholic French onion soup. I will make this again. There was a lot of onions and they were stringy, so I used a stick blender at the end to avoid having to deal with the strings with my spoon. Yummy. Thank you.

This was really great. I used a bit more liquid and butter. At the end i stirred in a few more tablespoons of butter to make it creamy. I don't like the texture of the sliced onion and a lot of broth so I used an immersion blender and blended some of it up. It was very very good. I used mozzarella cheese. Thanks for the post.

This recipe is delicious! I had another go-to recipe for many years, but I think I'm going to retire it and go with this. I made only a few, minor changes. I used margarine instead of butter, 4 sweet onions instead of 3 (cut the recipe in half), and doubled the broth (4 cups total). I also used beef-style vegetable broth (I'm a vegetarian). Even though I used sweet onions, I kept the sugar int he recipe. Thanks for sharing!
