    3KillerBs's Note:

    How do they get away with charging extra for something this easy? The soup will only be as good as the beef stock so don't use cheap, salty bullion cubes. Make your own stock or use the kind of good soup base that restaurants use. (Tones brand is available at Sam's Club).

      My family loves this recipe and I make it often. I sometimes use large croutons for garnish instead of the stale bread. Our SIL, who is a gourmet cook, wanted the recipe while visiting us. Thanks so much for posting this!

      Oh so easy to make up. Since I'm the only one who will eat onion soup, I halved the recipe. The blend of flavors is very good and does rival soup I've had in restaurants. Thanks for posting.
