So good! Great for soothing the thought!
Not great. Way too much bouillon making it way too salty! Also, onions are not truly "French Onion soup" caramelized. There are a bunch of easy, better recipes out there. There is even a recipe for caramelizing onions in a crock pot for easy recipes, just stir every 30 to 45 minutes, no babysitting the onions.
I changed it for arthritis therapy reasons - used Better Than Bouillon Chicken Base, 4 garlic cloves, added a broccoli, cauliflower, carrot mixture, omitted the French Bread & cheese. It suits me, it's good.
This soup is easy and better than Panera's. Low calorie, I used crusty french baguettes instead of french bread.
Perfect for this cold weather
