    Made this for our dinner last night. DH and I really enjoyed it. It had a bit more spice than I like in this type of soup. I would try half the pepper the next time I make it. It also took longer than 15 minutes to carmelize the onion and it still didn't get particularly brown. I used french bread and gruyere for the topping. Thanks for posting.

    Made this today for lunch. Due to weather, we didn't go to work, but I did some work from home. My boss stopped over with another co workers so I made this. I just made some quick mashed spuds in the micro and presto, spuds! This was great. I got some wonderful onions from the market and plenty of herbs so this was great. I didn't have croissants but some not baguettes sliced which worked fine and I almost always have gruyere which is a fave of mine. What a nice creamy soup. No complaints on this end and will definitely make again, it was very very good. 1 change, I added a bit more thyme but I also used fresh, but a tablespoon, but I really enjoy thyme. Only change. Perfect as is. And it didn't take long. I had 2 lbs of shrimp to cook, so we had peel and eat warm garlic shrimp and soup. Nothing more needed. It was heavenly and on a very very cold day even better. Thx for the great recipe.
