"We had creamy French onion soup at a restaurant and my son loved it, which was weird because he hates onions. So my husband found this recipe and made it tonight, we all LOVED it!! Way better than the restaurant! The only changes we made was cooking the onions in bacon fat instead of butter, and adding turmeric and garlic powder. So yummy, definitely a keeper. Thank you!"
