"My spin on Outback's Creamy Onion Walkabout soup...Please follow steps for the "white sauce" first...This tastes just like the restaurant!***The secret is the bay leaves...I found them in my soup @ Outback & knew that was the missing ingredient! This is the only recipe out there that includes the bay leaves!!!! This soup is my ALL TIME FAV!! (The WHITE SAUCE ingredients are the first 3 listed items on top) ENJOY!!!"
Serving Size: 1 (250 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"I've never had this at Outback, but this is a terrific soup. I made it exactly as written, and was very pleased with the creamy complexity of flavors. This is a winner - thank you so much for sharing."
"This recipe is AMAZING!! My husband & I recently went to Outback to find that their Creamy Onion Soup had been discontinued. :( This is a GREAT copycat!! It tastes exactly like Outback's. We are in LOVE with this soup ;) Thank you so much!"
"I worked at The Outback for 2.5 years. This is missing SAGE not bay leaves. I believe the correct amount was 1/8 to 1/4 tsp. depending on your taste. Not one recipe I found online shows sage, but its in there. I have made my recipe with the sage for my Mother-in-Law who is an Outbackaholic and this was her fave item. She swears by my recipe as exactly the same. Trust me I can tell the difference in a NY minute."
"I love this recipe and today is going to be my third time to make it. I don't like to cook anything in my kitchen, that has no air-conditioning, for two hours, so I do it faster. I use cornstarch instead of flour so that saves cooking time, and I cook the onions for about twenty minutes so when I add the cheese sauce it is basically cooked and I let it cook while I serve drinks and make a salad. Also, I do not like Velveeta that much so I use white extra sharp cheddar and it is scrumptious. Thank you so much for this, my husband loves you."
"I just trying I loved almost like Outback even better"
"Made this the evening after having tasted the soup for the first time at Outback -- it's delicious! Arguably better than Outback's soup! I pureed the onions before adding them in as my husband prefers it that way, which was the only change I made to this spectacular recipe. It disappeared in no time!"
"This is amazing!!!! Thank You for having this on here it has always been a family favorite when we have gone to Outback but now you cant get it all the time there. When I served this I was told that we wont be able to keep onions in the house:)"
"I made this for lunch, today. I used 2% milk and Cheese Whiz for the Velveeta, but otherwise followed the recipe. It was a little thinner than Outback but lacked nothing in flavor!! This recipe will go in my permanent collection!"
"I googled this today and made it tonight. Very easy and I had all the ingredients on hand. I added a little white wine and some shredded cheddar jack cheese when serving to give that stringy affect you get in Outback. It is very good and tastes amazingly like the real thing. I have tried a similar recipe in the past but I think the bay leaves do the trick. Thanks for the recipe...it's a keeper!"
"Made this for thanksgiving and everyone asked me for the recipe. Fairly easy to make. Highly recommended!"
"Really good. Tastes very much like Outback's. If you are serving it as a main course for 2, definitely double the recipe. I also added garlic salt & Emeril's Bayou Blast, which made it saltier, but I like a little extra seasoning."
"Awesome. Do it just like she says with one exception, DOUBLE the recipe or you will surely be wanting for more."
"Perfect copycat recipe, it tastes just like the restaurants! Thanks for posting!!"
"Just finished this recipe!! It is wonderful. I did not think I could get as close to Outback as this. I believe the bay leaves are the key!! This is a keeper!!"
"Very easy soup recipe. It only takes half the time stated. Although hubby and I did really enjoy this soup we both thought it to be just a bit salty so next time I make it I will use unsalted butter and low sodium chicken broth. Other than that, very nice. Made for PAC Spring 2008."
"This was extremely yummy - I made it exactly as the recipie stated - this is a keeper !"
"The recipe is a little time consuming but worth it. I used only 3 bay leaves, but probably will use 4 the next time, also will add more onios and a little more pepper to make it more like the Outback's soup. It is definitely a very good likeness."
"I've now been making this recipe for about two years and it is absolutely the best soup I've ever made! I didn't change anything, except when I multiplied the recipe X4 the Bay leaves amount seemed a little high, so I did not add all of them. This soup is a hit every time I make it, no matter where I take it."
"This recipe is right on the money. The soup is exactly like Outback's. Thanks."
"This is absolutely the right recipe if you're looking to duplicate the Outback's soup. Delicious and one of my all time favorite comfort foods! Thank you for sharing!!"
