Eyeball Soup Recipe

My family has fun serving this creamy soup to unsuspecting guests and watching their reaction when they stir up an onion "eyeball". You can make the soup a day ahead and reheat it in the slow cooker.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper until blended. Gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. In another saucepan, bring V8 to a boil. Reduce heat; gradually whisk in white sauce. Add onions; heat through. Yield: 10 servings (about 2-3/4 quarts).
Editor’s Note: If a smoother soup is desired, cool and puree in batches in a blender before adding onions.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 31, 2008

"I made this soup for a soup cook-off at work on Halloween, and won "Most Unique". I added a hint of cinnamon & nutmeg & all spice, too. I also pierced the ends of the onions with whole cloves to resemble a pupil. It went over very well. Very easy recipie that I would definately make again!"
