Sad story: on a recent move from AZ to WA, the box with all my recipes was lost!!! Tragedy!!! Imagine my delight when I found one of my favorite recipes online - it's a hard one to find! Thanks for posting this. It is the best french onion soup I've ever had. It is simple and classy and delicious. I do use croutons instead of french bread, though, since I found using a knife to slice the bread in the bowl was beyond me. And they are usually on hand and store beautifully, should there be any leftovers.

- 1 teaspoon salt
