Buttery Onion Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
Several years back, I needed ways to use up 25 lbs. of sweet onions—and this recipe's one I came up with. I like making it for guests. Sometimes, however, I'll fix a half recipe just for me! My husband and I raise sheep and cattle 8 miles from the Canadian border. We have two children, 18 and 16.

MY REVIEW

"I used only 1/4 cup butter to limit calories and fat. It tasted great! Next time I might try popstardiva's variations."

"This soup is tasty but it was a little bland. I added chopped celery to the onions and 1 tsp of dill along with salt and pepper and it was delicious"

MY REVIEW

"Like the previous reviewer I use beef broth instead of chicken broth, but otherwise I follow the recipe. My DH says he could live on this soup!"
