"This is a good "base" recipe- I made it with the following alterations:

I substituted the water for additional beef broth. I also reduced the amount of sugar by about half, and used balsamic vinegar to balance the sweetness. I used about 1/3 cup of butter instead of 1/4 cup.
I would use this as a launching pad to suit it to your tastes- other times I have added Worcestershire sauce or powdered onion soup mix."

"It was WAY too sweet, I agree about withholding the sugar. The onions were delcious, but the soup itself sucked. Sorry!"

"This soup was sweet - maybe if you left out the sugar it would be okay but with it in, it was awful."
