      Yummy soup. I made as directed other than halving the recipe. I used homemade stock which I think added even more flavor. Thanks for sharing. Made for Fall PAC 2012.

      Thanks for posting this "OUTSTANDING" Recipe. I served it to 16 people and they all got the recipe and could not stop raving about it. I did use my own home-made chicken stock. :-) This will be made many more times. It did take a lot longer though to swet the onions down, but who cares. The end result is wonderful.
