The taste of onions is superb in this rich and creamy soup! Float the toasted French bread on top with a sprinkling of chives. Fit for a king!

Sharon, honey--this was absolute heaven for me. I love onions and the combination of flavors was intense and so delicious. My husband agreed as well. I served this with hot fresh baked bread and it was an out of body experience. Thanks so much for a truly fabulous meal.
