Onion Cheese Soup Recipe

I made a few adjustments to this savory soup recipe I came across in a community cookbook. It's rich, buttery and cheesy, plus it's so quick to prepare. —Janice Pogozelski, Cleveland, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 1, 2013

Quick AND delicious, I couldn't ask for more! I used fresh grated Colby-Jack, threw in two medium potatoes that I had precooked and chopped, and replaced 2 cups of milk with 2 cups of chicken broth. I will DEFINITELY make this again, hands down!

this is your basic cheese soup. very good. i cook the onions down to just caramelized and add 3 cups of chicken broth or stock and 1 cup milk. also sharp cheddar gives it more punch. and a couple dashes tabasco. very tasty

REALLY good. REALLY easy. And tastes even better after I froze the leftovers for a few weeks. This is really really good!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 15, 2013

I made this for lunch the other day and although it had a good flavor, my cheese curdled as soon as I put it in. I ended up throwing most of it out. Maybe using velvetta would make a difference. I didn't boil the milk but it was very hot. I did read a recent review where someone said you should grate your own cheese instead of buying shredded cheese because there is something in the pre-shredded that makes it curdle. Don't know if that is true but it might be worth trying.
