    This was good; I made it minus the mushrooms (forgot to buy). I topped with a slice of mozzarella cheese and left out the french bread. Will make again! Made for Cookbook Tag March 2010.

    I can't say enough good things about this soup! What can be easier than 10 min prep (slice onions, saute)? I had to leave out the mushrooms because I completely forgot to purchase them during my last trip to the grocery store, but I will definitely add them next time. I also left out the french bread (not into soggy bread!) and used reduced fat mozzarella. I thought this might turn out bland and that DH would give it a thumbs down, but I was pleasantly surprised how much flavor this had and how little calories (they drop dramatically if you don't use the bread!). Super yummy...will make this very often!

    Honestly, I've never had onion soup before...but this was good. I used a slice of swiss cheese instead of the shredded but otherwise made as directed. I liked the mushrooms in it...gave it a little bit more interest besides just the onion flavor. Thanks so much for posting! Made for Phase 2 of Theirs, Yours, & Mine Photo Tag. :)

    It was my first time doing an onion soup. DH said it's one of the best he ate. Instead of using shredded swiss, I used a slice of reduced-fat swiss cheese. I used low-sodium beef broth. Thanks Lazyme for posting this great recipe :)

    This was absolutely delicious! My DS and are thoroughly enjoyed this for dinner tonight. I like the addition of the mushrooms - I've never had them in onion soup before. Thanks for a great recipe that I will be making again. French Onion Soup is one of my faves. Made in memory of lazyme's beloved DH, Don.
