French Onion Soup

Top Review by K9 Owned

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!
