  1. We enjoyed this soup quite a bit and with a few minor adjustments would probably be 5 star. I cut the recipe in half and used the quantities stated. After the long simmer the soup was still pretty light flavored and not reduced as much as I expected, so I cooked at least an hour longer. I had to reduce it down to 3 servings to get enough onion flavor, so I would definitely add an extra onion next time. Also I would leave out most of the sugar, as we didn't love the sweetness. That said, we liked the texture and richness once it had reduced, and the gruyere was a perfect foil for the onion. I will make a full pot the next time! Made for PRMRT
  2. Wow! This is worth the wait. It is delicious. Although I think my onions may have been a bit too large! But the delight once it is done makes all the time spent waiting on this delectable soup worth it! Thanks for posting. Made for PRMR tag!
  3. I have never made French onion soup, and thought this came out great! I cut back the amount of butter and sugar, and subbed Fontina cheese. Yummy!
