    LAURIE's Note:

    Perfection simplified. A rich tasting soup that everyone will think you slaved over. Better than that you get at the fanciest place! The house will smell great too! Slightly freeze the onions for ease in slicing and less tears.

      This is by far the best French Onion Soup I've had. I cut the recipe and made only a third for the two of us, using one large Peruvian sweet onion, 1 tbsp flour, 1 can of broth, 1 cup of water, etc. I didn't use the brown sugar at all because the onion was so sweet. I did not use the crockpot. The croutons were fresh garlic croutons made from a loaf of day old bread, made in the bread machine. I highly recommend this recipe.

      Wow!! This French Onion Soup is the BEST!! I did not make any changes to your recipe. The flavor just bowled me over. I wish that I had homemade croutons but had to settle for store-bought. I topped with shredded Swiss cheese. A true delight to the palate. Thanks Laurie.

      This was a really delicious soup. I didn't add the boullion cubes, and I cut the water back to three cups, also I didn't add any salt as I don't add it to anything. It is a definite keeper! Thanks.
