This is a fantastic soup especially on cold days. You can also put soup in individual onion soup bowls, add a few croutons and top with a handful of cheese; Mozzerella, Swiss, or whatever white cheese you like. Pop into oven on 350* and bake until cheese is melted and slightly golden.

Excellent onion soup recipe. I made this with vegetarian beef stock and it was very popular. Including with my toddler who I thought wouldn't be interested.

This was a great recipe. I changed it up a little and used 3 different types of onions. The flavours played off each other and made it very wholesome. Making it again as we speak.

I made this for my husband after his surgery. It was the best tasting onion soup we've ever had, and simple to make.... kudos!!
