Onion Cream Soup Recipe

Onion Cream Soup Recipe

My whole family loves this hearty soup, especially on cool autumn evenings. It's rich and creamy with a mild onion-cheese flavor. When I need an easy dinner, I stir up this soup and serve it with warm crusty bread and a crisp salad. -Janice Hemond, Lincoln, Rhode Island
