Welliver's Cream of Onion Soup

Recipe by Mary K. W.

From the October 1995 issue of Midwest Living. Welliver's is a well-known restaurant in east central Indiana. Their buffet is something to behold, so I was very excited when I saw some of their recipes in the Midwest Living magazine several years ago.

This was a nice smooth soup. It was a little on the bland side, so I added some hot paprika and more pepper. I also added some red pepper flakes. It is very simple to make and was good on a cold winter day. I think this would be great with some shredded chicken added in too. Made and Reviewed for Please Review My Recipe tag - Thanks! :)
