    AcadiaToo's Note:

    I love onion soup, however I do not like how the traditional rendition allows the bread to get soggy. This version uses the portabellas as the platform for the cheese and is sure to please.

      Liked the flavor of the soup but I disagree that bread or crouton makes onion soup difficult to eat. I personally thought the portabellas sliced with swiss over top was difficult to eat. Next time I will dice up the mushrooms or use bite sized pieces. Good flavors and the aroma and look of the soup was divine.
