    Mrs. Sherm's Note:

    This is the way my mother introduced us to F.O.S. in the 80s. It is still my favorite soup recipe and is made in the microwave with very little prep.

      Made for My 3 Chefs - Very good soup and quite similar to my stove top recipe. I think the only thing I missed was that I caramelize my onions and it adds great colour and flavour. Thx Mrs. Sherm.

      I really liked this soup from start to finish. I didn't have any dry onion soup mix, so I used Dried Onion Soup Mix instead. I reduced the butter to 1 tablespoon and 1 medium onion since I cut this in 1/2. I also had my own beef broth, so subbed the broth out for the bouillon too. Fast, and oh so tasty. I put this in my big coffee cup, sat and watched the day finish and enjoy this warm soup. Thank you Mrs. Sherm!
